SRL Teamphylloclades are broad with shorter almost rudimentary dentats on the margins. New growth starts reddish, maturing to golden yellow, eventually turning a light, lime green. Growth is well branched, upright in habit, with slower growth than the normal 'Cristen'. This is a fairly recent and quite unique “sport” from the original 'Cristen' that occurred at Whitton Greenhouses.
