Variegated foliage emerges with a stunning pink-white margin. Matures to a grey green foliage with bright white slightly wavy-edges. Late spring brings large star shaped white flowers. Fall brings a change of color to red-orange with pink margins and red berries. Multi season interest! Excellent as a specimen plant.
