InfoThis PDN introduction is a 1993 H. yingeri hybrid that forms a 4' wide x 18" tall vigorous clump of very shiny, green leaves, surrounded by a wide, golden yellow border. In mid-June, the clumps are topped with scapes of attractive purple, spider-like flowers. H. 'Swamp Thing' has been a real attention getter in our trial bed.
