This is a somewhat variable species, with some populations exhibiting the red “window pane” effect in the leaves (upper right above), others with different amounts of red shading on the undersides of the leaves. Both red windowpanes and other red markings are thought to attract hummingbirds to the vicinity of the flowers.
