|Info||'Arctic Circle', a vigorous grower, forms a dense, compact clump of creamy white edged Fortunei type leaves. The spring expression is especially unique (stemming from the influence of 'Cynthia' in its background): early expression is that of creamy chartreuse with a lighter cream border, and scattered throughout the leaf are flecked mottles of golden cream. Chameleon-like, this expression slowly changes to a deep green with cream/white edging. |
Elongated, cordate green leaves with a white edge, pruinose in Spring.
Plant is a white-margined form with rather elongated, heart-shaped leaves.
