Hi Mike
	Not to discourage you but I have a streaked Gold Standard which you can
see on my homepage. Everyone else said they had one but I knew mine just
had to be better. This is the second year and as fast as it puts out new
leaves the old ones get sunbleached and disintegrate. I probably won't
kill it but it isn't worth anything for a garden plant.
