This Alan Galloway selection makes a large 5' tall clump of medium green leaves with some chartreuse yellow flecking. The best trait is the stunning stalks, which are heavily streaked with purple and yellow. When planted in moist soils, it spreads well via aboveground rhizomes to form a large patch.
