liked, I wasn't paying attention.
Hi, Anne: Here's what I found.
H. hypoleuca 'Embroidery' (Paul Aden, NR): Part sun to light
shade, small clump to 20" wide, shiny green leaf that emerges a creamy
white in spring with exaggerated stitching on leaf edges (ruffled stiching
fades in warm weather), becomes shiny light green in warm weather. Lavender
flowers. Rumored to be the result of radiation of seeds.
H. 'Tattoo' (Tony Avent, 1998, PPAF): Part sun to light shade,
10" high x 18" wide. Sport of 'Little Aurora'. Small rounded bright gold
leaves with a wide green border and a dark green maple leaf "tattoo" in
the leaf center. Lavender flowers.
