The Grapevine Acropora at first appears similar to a Pearlberry, but this spectacular coral has a couple of additional exotic qualities. Polyps are solid bright pink with some red pigmentation in the center and base areas of polyp. In addition to these pink polyps, the corallites can also grow into elongated and curved tubular growths. Branch stems also develop the typical Pearlberry turquoise blue coloration.
