It is much smaller than H.'Aoki' and has heavy substance. The point where green meets white the green is very drawn in. The green spots in the white field are very dark and bold. The plant was named after a song from the sixties: Alley Oop, Oop, Oop, Oop and the real reason, Abbey's (of H.'Shennandoah Abbey') sister (our Grand daughter, a 4 years old) , is named Alley Hall [AM].
