'Moonlight', the first sport out of 'Gold Standard' was found by Pauline Banyai and registered in 1977. The leaves are gold-centered with white margins. The size of the mound may reach 50 x 20" with 24-36" scapes. The leaves are ovate with a rounded base. They have average substance and no marginal waviness. Zilis cautions that there are some "sports" which have raised dark green areas on a light gold background. The number of these green blotches changes from plan to plant, but they are not part of any normal variegation but rather may be a viral infection. The flowers are pale lavender and have a narrow funnel shape. It shares the poor fertility of 'Gold Standard'.
