An enchanting seasonal show from color-changing foliage. An upright mound of lightly cupped, thick, slug resistant leaves with a vibrant yellow flame in the center that changes to a creamy green as the season progresses, and an irregular blue-green margin that widens with age. Spikes of lavender flowers appear midsummer. An herbaceous perennial.
