Stunning contrast with bright white inside a dark green margin. Nice bloom! A big seller and one of our favorites.


A flashy sport of H. 'Patriot.' Very similar to H. 'Loyalist' except much smaller at maturity. Bright, pure white center with a sharply contrasting dark green margin; heavy substance. Sun and slug resistant. Needs good morning sun or steady filtered shade to maintain its vigor. Does not set seed. Possibly considered a tetraploid.
