InfoUnique misty netted medio variegated leaf.
One of the most talked about plants seen at the 2000 AHS convention, this new introduction has white centered leaves, edged in medium green. The white center is misted with tiny green speckles.
A very unique newer introduction...shiny green leaves have leaf centers that display a misty green and white variegation (whiter in the spring and greening up some by midsummer). Clump is topped with lavender flowers. The plants we are offering are 2nd year tissue-culture and, although small, they are well-rooted and growing nicely.
The plant has medio-variegated leaves with a fairly dark-green border and, in spring, a whitish center that is handsomely speckled with green flecks, hence the "foggy", misty" look. The center turns to a light greenish color later in the season.
