This Japanese selection of D. sessile f. stenophyllum produces 10" tall stems, adorned with pinkie-sized chartreuse gold leaves, edged with a narrow band of dark green. The stems are also highlighted with small white flowers in early spring. D. 'Kinsei' is not aggressive, but does spread by underground rhizomes and can pop up anywhere within a 3' wide area. To keep the patch tighter, plant in a sunken container with the bottom removed.
