   NOTE - This plant is infected with a virus that can spread.

Most people form an immediate opinion when they see this plant, with its gold leaves splotched with green. It is a 'Little Aurora' with odd variegation. Testing by Dr. Ben Lockhart has confirmed this is caused by a virus. At any rate, I registered it (in 2000) for the following reason: it is stable. I have had the plant and all its many divisions for 5 plus years and have never known it to affect any adjacent cultivar. Nor have I manually infected another plant using same knives, etc. Leaf size and flowers are the same as 'Little Aurora'. The patterning holds all season. The only change comes at midseason when the second flush appears and generally shows none of the patterning seen on the spring flush.
