One of the classics, this plant has been about since 1860 apparently. Emerges in the spring with a bright creamy centre, which fades slowly to green in the summer, but never quite as dark as the leaf margin. Great early season variety, and the lavender flowers add a bit of interest later in summer. I like this variety for its vigour and reliability as well, as it seldom fails on any reasonable site. Will grow to 80cm or so wide.
