Snow White Sisters?
Default Snow White Sisters?

I'm wondering if anyone can share some more information about the Snow White Sisters?

Here's what I've learned from Satomi. "The 5 Snow White Sisters were discovered from Amami seedling and propagated by division. They produce beautiful snow white stripe on large and wide foliage. When temperature drops, they produce beautiful scarlet variegation over white stripes. These neo likes direct sunlight. Have ruby root tips, large fragrant flowers on pink spikes."

I know of:
Momoyama Nishiki,
Kousetsu, and
Hakko Nishiki

Does anyone know what the others are?

Seems some of them have very little striping or no striping at all, from pictures identifying them. Do some develop striping later?

I'm also hoping someone can share their experience with growing these? Or pictures (speak 1000 words)

Thanks for your post.

This is the first time I’ve heard of the term, “Snow White Sisters”

I have a Hakkou Nishiki, it is quite small, about three inches across and have had it for about 2 years.

I've been waiting until it gets larger to post pictures of it.

I have found that the white turns to scarlet only when the growth is growing and exposed to good sunlight, old growths which were not so exposed when new remain white even when exposed to good sunlight. I was not aware of temperature connection wrt scarlet development but it’s possible.

Individuals showing little to no striping (white or scarlet) at all might be misidentified. You can't believe everything you see on the internet.

I hope your post results in greater discussion of this highly desirable group. It deserves it.

Because of interest shown at this time, I have decided to post a picture of my Neof. Hakkou Nishiki now instead of waiting until it grows larger.
