'Cynthia' is highly unstable. Many leaves appear to be blotched and spotted while others are not. One year the plant may look like a painter's dropcloth; the next year it may be plain except for some small amount of streaking. The leaves are cordate and it has some ruffled margins. The blotches or spots are often chartreuse in color on the medium green of the leaf. Its ancestry is unknown. The plant becomes quite large at 60 x 36" with 34" scapes. The flowers are lavender and it blooms early in the season. It makes a great large specimen plant. It was introduced by Tompkins in 1984.
