came out from seedling of Amami furan. This variety became very popular because the variegation looks similar to Kinbotan. New leaves grow with ghost leaf (all yellow) and produce green color later. The leaf loose their variegation as it gets old. So you will see all yellow leaf on top, tiger stripe (yellow on green base) in the middle and solid green leaves at bottom. Beatiful coloration! Plant gets bigger because of the gene of amami furan. Some says this variety is large type of Kinbotan. Very desirable. The ruby roots add the value to it too.
Produce beautiful white tiger stripe called Amanogawa-type variegation (beautiful snow-white tiger stripe plus center transparent).
