This stunning specimen arose as a sport on Kevin Walek's wonderful H. 'Dee's Golden Jewel'. Instead of having all-gold foliage like the parent, H. 'Jewel of the Nile' has dark green foliage with a wide border of gold. The upright vase-shaped form makes an almost perfect 2' wide clump, topped in late June with 30" tall scapes of near-white flowers. You are certain to love this one.
