Descriptions:
A gold sport of the 'Fragrant Bouquet' group which, unlike H. 'Fried Bananas', is a true gold.
H. 'Fried Bananas' has always been a disappointment, as it is not gold (center color of H. 'Guacamole'). 'Twenty-Four Carat Gold' is the base color of H. 'Color Parade' and is truly gold. A specimen in my garden, in partial sun, has always looked good, even in late Summer. This plant has been shipped in the past as a substitute for 'Fried Bananas'.
