InfoCross of sieboldiana 'Elegans' and 'Kabitan' from Eric Smith. Small, lanceolate-ovate yellow leaves. Hard to find until recently, this is one of my favorite yellows.
Bright yellow, turns green.
Medium size, leaves wide luminescent gold color early changing to chartreuse by mid summer. Lavendar flowers in August and September. A real splash in the garden.
This plant will knock your socks off in the spring…the brightest yellow-golden leaves early spring that change to chartreuse by summer. Lavender flowers later in the season.
