12"h x 33"w mound of variable streaked foliage with a chartreuse margin; sometimes stabilizing to other forms including chartreuse-centered, dark green margin of variable width and streaking toward the midrib.. Leaves are ovate-lancelote in shape. 5-3" long x 2. 25-2. 5" wide, 6-7 pair of veins. Light lavendar flowers, sterile. Scapes 10-12" with leafy bracts. Slow growing but forms a nice clump over time.
