Info='Paradigm'.
This plant is from Holland and we believe it is a sport of H. 'Gold Standard', a yellow- centered leaf with a blue-green border that has tremendous substance. As H.'Patriot' is to H.'Francee' this is to H. 'Gold Standard', the top of the leaf is very smooth and has a nice sheen. Seems to do well in both sun or shade.
From 'Gold Standard.' Yellow rugose leaves broadly margined glossy apple-green. Lilac flowers.
