Comments: Wow, what a choice selection of 'Marmorata' with even more white marbling on its leaves. As this cultivar ages the foliage becomes more and more variegated to a point it's sometimes difficult to see any green. Best when planted where it gets a break from the hot afternoon sun and hot winds as the lightly colored leaves will scorch.
