This seedling of H. 'Golden
Anniversary' was registered by
Eunice V. Fisher of Wisconsin in 1971. It forms a
large size (26 inches high by 56 inches wide) mound of gold
foliage which turns to green as the season progresses. The
leaves are heavily corrugated and deeply cupped. It bears
funnel-shaped pale lavender flowers from late June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Besides an attractive mound habit, intense corrugation,
and spring gold color, the deep cupping of each leaf makes
'Crinkle Cup' both intriguing and ornamentally attractive."
