Leaf centers fade slowly through lighter shades of green, yellow & cream.  Margins appear to get darker as the centers fade.  An ever evolving (kaleidoscopic) array of colors and textures...Leaf centers fade from green to yellow to cream throughout the season...lightly wavy overall and very lightly corrugated late in the season."
