jmg id if you please

Does anyone recognize this JMG? The foliage is variegated and mid-sized, the flower is quite large; larger than it would appear in the photo. Imagine it without the split. It was perfect until I "admired" it to death. I took several photos, but the color was hard to capture-this one is the best representation although the distinct white picotee edge does not appear as cleanly as it does in life.


Thanks, Alana

That's really pretty and variegated foliage too.

RE: descended from Akatsuki no Murasaki

I think this originated with "Akatsuki no Murasaki" and picked up the gene for displaying only the rayed pattern , although the tube and ray colors are still basically the same as the ANM can display either early or later on in the may have a name in Japan although I don't recall exactly what...

RE: jmg id if you please

Thanks Ron! I believe you are right. Growing on the same support is a plant with blooms that look like Akatsuki no Murasaki and they were all planted from the same packet of seeds. The blue is a bit darker and more saturated than in this picture.
They came from a trade packet labeled Hatsu Arashi, which none of the blooms resemble. I think it is a matter of a mislabeled packet compounded by the variation you mention.
I am confident you have solved my mystery!
