An apparent chimeric polyploid (see note below) sport of H. 'Christmas Tree' induced by Surflan treatment. Has a wide white boarder that stands out from the dark green center with increased substance over 'Christmas Tree'. Early observations indicate a plant somewhat smaller than 'Christmas Tree'. Plant maintains the vigor of the parent. Compare H. 'Patriot' with H. 'Francee' to get some idea of what changes have occurred with the herbicide treatment.
