This wild and crazy form of our native green and gold was found by Don Jacobs's son in south central Georgia and first introduced in 1992. The flat-growing rosettes of this unique plant produce long runners to several feet (obviously grew up near spider plants) and makes a fabulous deer-resistant woodland groundcover. The color from the purple stolons runs into the base of the leaves, which have an unusual glossy appearance. The clump is adorned with yellow flowers in spring, although the blooming period is somewhat shorter than other cultivars. Expect a 4' wide mat in a couple of years or use it to great effect in seasonal containers.
