About This Plant

A well established clump will measure about 20" across and 14" tall, with a somewhat vaselike form, especially on younger plants. Leaves are semi-cupped, about 4" x 6" and often crinkled with age. Substance is very heavy. Consequently, 'Glad Rags' takes a good deal of sun here without complaint. Shade produces a chartreuse-gold border; semi-shade produces a clean, bright gold border; stronger sun ultimately transitions chartreuse to gold to ivory. The gold borders are extra wide, encasing an irregular swath of green center. The pattern is repeated on every leaf; yet no two leaves are exactly the same. Even a young plant is singular. An established clump is stunning.
