Clarence (C.H.) Falstad, III of Michigan registered this sport of H. 'Gold
Drop' in 1988. It forms a small size (10 inches high) mound of gold centered foliage with a green
margin. The lavender flowers appear from late June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I cannot recommend this cultivar
for landscaping purposes...it does not have a fast growth rate.
Even worse is the fact that the gold leaf center develops a
significant amount of
spring desiccation burn. There are better choices."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Amy Elizabeth' and H. 'Tick Tock'.
