Clumping perennial producing large tropical variegated striped white and green leaves that reach around 3' tall. Bright yellow flowers with a white mid-petal stripe start in late spring and last through late summer, especially if dead headed regularly. Very showy. This selection is often used in mass plantings, and in highly visible areas. Good in containers. Grows in full sun to part shade. Give average water and good drainage. Dies to ground with hard frost but comes back faithfully in zones 7b-10. Cut back to ground in early winter/late fall.
