We discovered this sport in 1998 in our garden near our gazebo. Each leaf has butterscotch yellow streaks heavily splattered throughout. The underside of the leaves are deep red along the central rib, spreading into the leaf backs on older foliage. In late summer the clumps reach 7' tall and are topped from early September until frost with fragrant flowers of pale peach with a contasting yellow center and nice dark peach stigmas...a stunning combination.
