The ‘Stained Glass’ leaves are a lovely combination of deep raspberry surrounded by a slate-green border with a scalloped burgundy edge making this medium-sized rex a true showpiece for any home or garden. Its richness of color changes depending on the age of the leaf. The younger leaves sport more raspberry color and develop their defining ring of green as they age. ‘Stained Glass’ has a compact, tight growth habit and does well on a windowsill where space is limited.
