Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio in 1996, this cultivar is a result of a cross between
H. 'High Noon' and
macrophylla. It forms a large size (at least 22 inches high)
mound of semi-upright foliage. The leaves have a deeply lobed
base and are slightly wavy and corrugated with thick substance. Very pale purple flowers are
borne in June.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...can be thought of as a gold-leaved
H. montana macrophylla."
