Named after an old coin term I think?
From Alex Malloy comes this sport of H. 'Abiqua Recluse', bright gold leaves with a white edge on this fast grower with above average substance. Can take a fair amount of sun and is topped with pale lavender flowers in midsummer. Name comes from electrum which is a natural alloy of gold and silver and stater which is an ancient Greek coin
