This is the most famous and heavily used Portea species.  It produces green leaves in filtered shade or gold leaves with red tips in full sun.  An individual plant will rarely bloom- it first has to produce a few pups and those will bloom together.  The bloom is pink and blue and lasts 2-3 months in most climates.
