Schmid (1991) described groups of plants that have the same basic structure and vary only in their leaf color. The cultivars listed are very similar to each other and some are probably identical i.e. the same plant but with a different name.

This group was defined as "...group of yellow-margined sports of H. 'Sieboldiana' which have been found as mutations in the wild as well as in cultivation in Japan and in Western gardens. These mutations can occur in several sizes and vary from the species (now cultivar) only by the leaves which have very irregular, yellow margins. The best known of these sports in H. 'Frances Williams'..."
