'Northern Star'

This is a sport of H. 'Elegans' that has a chartreuse margin. Registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 1993. It forms a large size (27 inches high) plant with moderately corrugated, wavy leaves with thick substance. Near white flowers bloom in mid-June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I have yet to figure out why 'Northern Star' has been a failure in the garden. It should have been a non-burning improvement on 'Frances Williams'...Skip this one unless you have to have them all."
