InfoEunice Fisher Distinguished Merit Award winner 2007.
As a seedling 'Lakeside Cupcake' displayed colors, shapes, and substance that claimed my attention, but it was several years before it became stable. It was worth the wait. The creamy white centers of the cupped leaves are encircled with a wide band of blue-green. A leaf from this plant was voted best variegated plant in 1999. It was registered in 1998. It has a moderate growth rate and nearly round leaves with cordate bases. The parentage is H. "streaked seedling" x H. "blue seedling." [MC].
A deep blue green border contrasts the glowing white center of these cupped leaves. A favorite of all who see it. Voted best variegated leaf at show in Ann Arbor.
