InfoWe don't know much about this one, but we do know a little bit about Greg Johnson. He's been hybridizing for a decade or so but has released very few plants. The reason why is that he perhaps the most thorough at evaluating them of any hybridizer. He will not release a plant until he is sure about it and he doesn't decide that lightly. A man of remarkable patience.
Hybrid of 'Spritzer' x H. pycnophylla from Greg Johnson of Marshalltown, Iowa.
Impressive gold foliage in a moderately dense mound.
