InfoBright yellow margins gradually turn to an apple green with white lines dividing the center and margin. Slightly twisted and cupped.
Sport from H. 'Striptease' with bright yellow borders that eventually turn apple green...leaf center is dark and shows the typical 'Striptease' white line. 'Yellow Polka Dot Bikini' is quite distinctive early on but as it changes it begins to look very similar to H. 'Hanky Panky'. The beautiful spring show is well worth having the plant. Leaves twist and cup a little and then flatten out later. Topped with lavender flowers midsummer.
