This cultivar has been around for years, but our most vigorous form came from Yucca Do Nursery. The unstable variegation pattern (comes and goes on a whim) results in leaves that range from solid purple (typical) to all variations of pink striping. Each 2' wide x 10" tall clump is topped in late summer with small lavender flowers, but the foliage is the reason to grow this cutie.
