Also edge variegated.
'Justice' is a streaked form of H.' Victory'. Victory is an edged form of H. 'Elatior'. Now you know the full story. For if you grow or have seen a mature clump of 'Elatior', you know that it gets huge! 'Elatior' has been used for years by breeders to get large size into their hybrids. Until 'Justice' came along, the pollen needed to be taken to other streaked plants to get the size from 'Elatior' into a variegated plant. Now you can use some pollen from the largest of the solid colored plants to create your very own giants, a much faster process than going multiple generations to find the giant you are looking for in a seedling patch! Restated, a very good, large breeder plant.
