Seedlings of Ae. bracteata 'Rubra' would be that red, but so would the mother. Are those seedlings from the same clone as the green plant? Is that as red as that one gets?

Yes, Lisa, the pup is from the same plant as the seedlings. Here she is, the poor old thing, with one pup still attached. I was going to allow her to maintain her dignity, but I am intrigued that the seedlings are so beautiful when her colouring has always been drab, to say the least.
