InfoThe leaf center emerges green and becomes gold or white in more light, similar variegation as 'Paul's Glory'. Great substance, good grower.
This sport of H.'Pineapple Poll' is a medium clump of long lance-shaped leaves and has the same variegation type as H. 'Paul's Glory' with the leaf emerging blue-green and then the leaf center becoming gold (and then white in more heat and light) as the season progresses. Leaves are ruffled and have very heavy substance. Light lavender flowers in late July
