Cee has been keeping me busy looking for leaves and flowers with surface patterns on them, and I’ve discovered that the patterns come in several variations.
Lines / stripes
A form of veining for leaves with linear veins this striped leaf is of the Calathea ornata plant in a Bangkok Wat, Thailand.These cream leaves with green markings are red underneath. Stromanthe sanguine ‘Triostar’ is a member of the Maranta or Prayer Plant family Marantaceae, a plant prone to unusual markings.
Striking striped leaves of the Canna Lily.
Flames / Flares
This Flame Tulip displays veining with a certain ‘flare’.
Spotted / dotted.
Moth Orchid. Leaves of the Pineapple Lily.
Croton leaves have a real variety of markings.Tigridia flower.
Totally random dots and splashes of white have been applied on this Poinsettia.With the reverse on this rose, with flicks of candy-apple red spattered all over its white petals.
