Very desirable variegated form with dainty blue-green leaves edged in white. In spring each a pink tinge overlays the leaf. Slow growing and a bushy habit make it great for growing in containers.

This variety has a tendency to revert to green foliage with no variegation. These branches can be cut out or left on till next spring when they will leaf out with the standard variegation.
