Dr. Kevin Vaughn of
Massachusetts and introduced by
Paul Aden of New York in
the late 1970's, this large size (22 inches high by 56 inches wide)
is a seedling of H. 'Frances Williams'.
It was registered on Vaughn's behalf by
Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2010.
The foliage has dark green centers and creamy
white marginal variegation. The leaves have a slightly wavy margin and a heart
shaped base. Pale lavender flowers bloom in mid to late July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...ranks as one of the best

resemblance to it, being more akin to a large 'Fortunei'."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Brave
Amherst', H. 'Crowned
Imperial' and H. 'Mildred
