Neutral Wingnut On Aug 29, 2002, Wingnut from Spicewood, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

Monding form of I. batatas that gets around 8" tall. Foliage is green, but not bright lime green like Margarita and Terrace Lime. What sets this one apart is it's deeply lobed leaves, finely divided into many thin "fingers", hence the name.
