Choice selection from Japan that is necessary. This small species gets to just 12" tall and has superb soft yellow variegated foliage in spring and early summer which matures to a light green. If it kept the preponderance of yellow then this would be a skinny and underfed selection but the summer chlorophyll kicks in just in time to give this vigor.
