Marbled Purple Stripe

RUSSIAN RED

Marbled Purple Stripes are mysterious and interesting.  The plants are similar to Purple Stripes, but the bulbs could be mistaken for Rocamboles.  When these bulbs are broken apart, they can display characteristics of both Rocamboles and Purple Stripes.  However, testing puts this variety within that of the Purple Stripe.

Bulb wrappers tend to be mottled rather than striped.  Most strains have only 4-7 cloves per bulb.

One pound may produce 50+ plants.
