Chirita sinensis 'Hisako'

Chirita sinensis was the first of the Chiritas with the silver and green leaf pattern to become widely distributed. 'Hisako' is a variant with broader leaves and a lacier silver filigree. It makes a truly outstanding symmetrical rosette when well-grown as a foliage plant. Flowers of this form can be seen here, and another foliage plant here.
