This unique introduction is one that seemingly attracts all types of gardeners. This strange mutation of H. 'Gold Standard' has a durable, dark green H. 'Fortunei'-like leaf, but with a unique pattern of gold and white in the center of each leaf. Alongside the golden center is a narrow white band between it and the green. The band is often not seen in young plants, but does seem to develop with age. In midsummer, the vigorously growing, 2' wide clump is topped with violet flowers on 2' tall scapes. This is one truly spectacular plant that will have all the neighbors drooling!
