InfoH. 'Ruffed Up' is ruff enough to endure winter in the arctic tundra (okay, Minnesota).
The color will change from green in the shade to mottled gold and green, to yellow-gold in the sun. Forget the tanning lotion, absolutely no burn. With the genetics of H. 'Bottom Line', good growth, great substance, sun tolerance and scapes the size of Redwoods, this spectacular clump of ruffled and gold foliage will be a delight to own.
With more sun it gets a two tone leaf color.
