Registered in 1997 by George French, RIPPO is a ‘Clown’ x ‘Lady Ruffles’ cross that is much easier to grow than the original ‘Clown’. Inner petals are very light purple (almost white) blending to dark red at the tips. The second row of petals are dark red with light frosty purple edges. The outermost petals of this large (8+ inches) bloom are solid dark red with slight purple overtones.
When established, the plant has 1 – 2 inches wide, flat and some angled branches that grow an average of 1 foot per year. We recommend this Epiphyllum variety for every level of grower.
Each Epiphyllum plant is rooted in a 4” pot and has been growing for 1 to 3 seasons. We insure each plant is well rooted and most are ready for transplanting into bigger pots.
Plant sizes can range from 8 – 30 inches depending on variety ordered

I recently ordered this plant for you guys. It came promptly, was very carefully packaged (I'm impressed), and the plant was in excellent condition when it arrived. It is new to the yard and still getting acclimated but is doing fine so far.
