'Nifty Fifty' (Herb Benedict, 1986) is 36x25' with 28" flower scapes. The leaves are blue-green with an irregular yellow margin that fades to cream. Many of the leaves are cupped. The flowers are light lavender and clustered at the end. There are small leafy bracts and the leaves have some rugosity. It is a 'Dorothy Benedict' stable form, as is 'Mean Mama' which has a cream center.
