New Episcia Variety

If we ignore the varieties with randomly variegated leaves, most episcias have either green leaves or some shade of "brown" leaves. In a local garden center, I now see a number of plants that have green leaves with typical silver veining, plus most leaves have pairs of darker "brown" splotches on either side of the mid-rib. Is anyone familiar with this variety? Does it have a name?

LOCAL GARDEN CENTER?? Really? I would love to find Episcia at the local garden center. Can I ask where?

RE: New Episcia Variety

Here in the Richmond, VA area, at least two local nurseries (not big box stores) stock episcia, one seasonally and the other most of the year.

For a photo of the unknown episcia variety that I found online, go to and scroll down to the sixth photo.

Reminds me of a good old variety "Pink Panther". As usually - no tag - NoiD -but if it is a paler version of an old favorite - may be in different growing conditions it will return back to more intense colors?
