‘Emerald Bay’ Aglaonema, (PP12,867), was selected as a vegetative sport from ‘Golden Bay’ Aglaonema. Emerald Bay lacks the yellow background coloration present in normal Golden Bay leaves and petioles. The single stem sport was increased by stem cuttings and studied at MREC-Apopka for stability and performance. Aglaonema ‘Emerald Bay’ remained stable after propagation, maintaining its new foliar pattern and other desirable traits of the Golden Bay parent.
Emerald Bay leaves can be 4 to 5 inches wide and 12 to 13 inches long. The leaf margin is smooth and the leaf tissue on either side of the midrib tends to be of unequal widths, resulting in a slight curving of the blade towards the narrower side. Leaves exhibit a central gray area that extends out from each side of the leaf midrib to cover slightly over half of the total leaf surface. Leaf borders are dark green and intersect the lighter gray colored central area along irregular borders. This overlap creates small distinct patches of a third color that is a darker gray green color. Emerald Bay Aglaonema performs exceedingly well under interior conditions.
