I was wondering why some 'Electric Line' are pure yellow-green and some have red veins. Found this:

This is the big sister to 'Electra'. Sporting red veins in cool temperatures on huge leaves, the lime-tinted foliage forms a large mound and has the bonus of attractive stems of densely packed, white flowers. The strong H. villosa and H. americana parentage will help with heat and humidity tolerance.
