Our 1995 introduction is an open-pollinated seedling from the giant H. 'Sum and Substance'. The 5" wide, heart-shaped leaves emerge dull green and soon change to a nice chartreuse gold. About this time, jet-black scapes emerge that contrast well with the foliage. The 2' wide clumps are topped with 22" tall, medium-lavender flowers. We find that the foliage and scape coloration is best in more sun...especially morning sun.
