Info'Golden Tiara' variant, similar to 'Emerald Tiara', but the leaf center is much brighter yellow-gold, with a muted green edge. Very unusual because the leaf color is very striking, while the variegation is somewhat subtle.
My favorite of the Tiara-Scepter series.
Purple flowers.
Lighter colors than 'Emerald Tiara', less vigorous and smaller.
One of the best of the Tiaras.
