Mark Zilis brought us 'Emerald Crust' in 1988. The leaf is lanceolate and creamy white in color. It is considered albescent (whitens with age) and has a bright green margin, sometimes extending into the middle rib. The flowers are pale lavender. It is a 'Fortunei Gigantea' mutation. The dimensions are 40x20" with a 42" scape.
