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.
Sometimes the veining only shows up in the fall when the leaves change colour. Petunia with purple markings extended in Pixlromatic’s ‘flowery’ frame.
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.
