Descriptions (from various sources):
Early color, only gets better. Looks like a green 'Lightning Strike' ( like a water mark, if you will). We plan to register & introduce 2002.
H. 'Xanadu Dlanor ' is a sport out of H. 'Little Aurora' and it demonstrates the same good vigor and garden worthiness. It is unlike (and unrelated to) H. 'Tattoo', in that the coloration is reversed, with 'Xanadu Dlanor' having margins which are lighter and the center darker.
This plant has the darker color in the center with the lighter one on the edge, and still carries that amazing dark green line between the two. Also a sport of one of the 'Little Aurora'-type plants (they are soooo confusing, aren't they?), this one seems to be from the stronger plant with that name, and is a much better grower than the sometimes-reluctant 'Tattoo'.
