registered in 1996 by
of Virginia and

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...is at its best in an immature
stage. Such plants continue to grow throughout the season and
exhibit a beautiful combination of green-centered and
gold-centered foliage. Though registered as a sport of
'Patriot', it does not have the thick substance of its mother
plant, making that origination doubtful."
