From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2015: LEPRECHAUN'S TRICK (Black ‘15) TB Midseason-Late 31” (79cm). Some whimsical little leprechaun decided to have a bit of fun painting the foliage green with cream to white stripes. Stability of variegation is some of the best for TBs. As with all variegated foliage TBs to date, it can have an occasional green reversion. Also of note are the variegated flowers. They have subtle pale green segments on white flowers, but it is there. It is being used to create bolder variegated flower colors and variegated foliage. Excellent growth and increase. Sdlg. S373A: Variegated Wonder X Frontline. $55.00.
