About This Plant

Leaf Detail: 8in long by 6in wide; color changes from gold-centered with a white margin to green-centered with a white margin (1/4in wide); blade ovate-shaped, moderately corrugated (at maturity), and slightly wavy. Flowering: pale lavender flowers open on three-foot scapes. Comments: mutation of ‘Sea Fire’ introduced by Bob Solberg in 1995 that offers interest the whole growing season; multi-colored effect created through a combination of season color changes, new growth, and variegation.
