High Grade Variegated Sparrow

Sparrow is another Chinese Clivia the tips of the leaves are pointed like a Sparrow's Beak. This is high grade based on the 10 standards of appreciation for Chinese Clivia.

This is not a Sparrow Clivia. I since learned that the supplier made a mistake in the listing and this is an average quality Chinese with good variegations. Sparrow is a very dwarf plant with pointed leaf tips like a sparrow's beak. I just assumed the seller was correct in the listing and that there was a long leaf sparrow but all the sparrow are compact plants ad this plant has no sparrow genes in it. Sorry about the confusion.

Hi Kay,

To me it is a decent variegated plant. I can't do any better than that. Thanks for posting pictures.
