An open-pollinated seedling that I registered in 1997, this is the brightest plant in the garden in the spring. Upon hardening off, the leaves turn olive green (the gold holds longer in more light). The blade is very cupped and corrugated, almost like a 'Tokudama' but smaller. Leaf size 4 x 4". Midsummer blossoms are an interesting dark violet, tucked at the base of a scape leaf on the first few blossoms. The stalk then continues with a normal flowering of some 20 additional blooms. From a distance the just-opening few flowers with scape leaves create a pyramidal shape more like a Christmas tree than the cultivar that goes by said name.
