Wide, blue-green margins surround a cartreuse center in spring, eventually fading to white. Fern green streaks are painted between the margin and center of each leaf. The thick, puckered broadly ovate leaves are slug resistant. Produces white flowers above the foliage on 24" scapes in early to midsummer. A slow grower but well worth it.

Prefers moist, well drained soil. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer before new growth begins. Cutback plants in the fall to promote strong vigorous spring growth. Divide plants every few years to maintain plant vigor.
