Descriptions:
A new streaked plant that's one of the smallest yet. Alex says it's a seedling of 'Loleta Powell'. It was named for the city of Tyre, now in Lebanon, but once the shining capital of the Phoenicians, who ruled the waves before the Romans came along. Interestingly, it was the source of a purple dye in those days, but none was used on this plant. Alex says it's a "lovely little breeder with attractively wavy edges. Though small, it's a great grower."
