|Primulina yungfuensis - Original Frosted Jade|
There is much interest in the species Primulina yungfuensis, first shown and distributed by Jim Roberts. It has distinctive variegated foliage and I’ve proposed a marketing common name of ‘Frosted Jade’.
Once I got stock established, I have propagated hundreds. Its only weakness is brittleness --- its leaves want to snap off. I think that it could be a stand-alone plant, promoted as Frosted Jade.
Awhile back, I noticed a different leaf pattern----a mutation in the population of yungfuensis. It has much more silver and is distinctively different from the original clone.
I’ve propagated these leaves to prove that it is stable. Once I have a group to test, I can decide about naming and possible release.
A new Frosted Jade…
