Redder than red (5 pics)

Sorry, I just had to share this with you. Every year when my L. lesliei 'Fred's Redhead' are changing their leaves I'm so amazed how dark they actually are. This is not a red color as suggested by the name. This is dark velvety vine color. The one in the middle is almost black! 
They are quote small for their age and I doubt they will flower this year, but who knows. Would be great to sow more. They are so unusual.

    1. Thank you! When the new leaves first come out it's truly amazing. They get paler with time though.

  2. Lovely colour. Would be nice if you got some seed.

    1. Yes... But they really don't feel like it yet. Still too small and too young I guess.
