Descriptions:
A streaked breeder from Alex, a sport of H. 'Electrum Stater' with leaves that are streaked gold and white. This fast grower exhibits very heavy substance and will take lots of sun. Proven to produce streaked seedlings and named after the ancient Greek sun god.
Maybe Alex Malloy's best plant for hybridizing purposes, 'Helios' is the streaked form of 'Abiqua Recluse'. It's fertile and gives streaked seedlings. Could be the best streaked plant yet for breeding variegated golds.
Progeny:
'Sol' seedling
'Valley's Love Cats' = PP x 'Arc de Triomphe'
