(Mature Size: 18"T x 48"W)
Attractive mound of thick gold leaves with a contrasting dark green margin. The margin often streaks towards the midrib.
The leaves of 'Darwin's Standard' are fairly shiny and heavily corrugated which accentuates the beauty of the clump.
In a bright sunny location the center of the leaf will become more creamy-white.
Originally thought to be an improved sport of 'Gold Standard' but Mark Zilis mentions in "The Hostapedia" that the flowering habits have proved this to be closer to 'Paradigm'.
Near white flowers early summer.
Why Should I Grow It? Beautiful contrast between the dark green and gold.
