Registered in 1997 by George French, RIPPO is a ‘Clown’ x ‘Lady Ruffles’ cross that is much easier to grow than the original ‘Clown’. Inner petals are very light purple (almost white) blending to dark red at the tips. The second row of petals are dark red with light frosty purple edges. The outermost petals of this large (8+ inches) bloom are solid dark red with slight purple overtones.
When established, the plant has 1 – 2 inches wide, flat and some angled branches that grow an average of 1 foot per year. We recommend this Epiphyllum variety for every level of grower.
