This cultivar was registered in
Minks of Fairway Enterprises in Minnesota as a hybrid of H. 'Carol' × H. 'Fortunei Aureomarginata'. It grows about 24 inches in height
with a width of 57 inches. The leaves are dark green with a
greenish yellow marginal variegation. They are slightly
corrugated and of average substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom
from late July into August.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Though registered as a hybrid, 'Crown Royalty' is more
likely a sport out of 'Fortunei Aureomarginata'. It resembles
the latter closely in every characteristic except margin color."
