Have had Punky a few years. I disagree with the golden yellow leaf colour mentioned in the details. It becomes yellower through the season, but it starts green and only gradually becomes yellow. Mine is still quite green in early August, whereas Janet is nearly all yellow. Really heavy substanced leaves are not bothered much by slugs or other pests. Mine is blooming in early August.
