'Kinbotan' creates a small mound (20x 8") of yellow-margined leaves with a medium green center. The margins become more green as the summer progresses. The leaves are ovate with a rounded base. The flowers which are held on 18" scapes are purple and fertile. The plant is a sport of a venusta seedling, and is from Japan where it is very popular.
