This is a cultivar, a hybrid between several Echinodorus varieties. The new leaves are slightly reddish, with spots when they form, but soon turn golden, while the oldest leaves are darker and green. The veins are lighter, giving rise to the name ''Tricolor'' - ''Three colours''. E. ''Tricolor'' is a speciality originating from the Czech aquarium plant nursery Rataj.
