Name: H. 'Last Dance'

Description: thick, medium green, heart-shaped leaves are bordered by an uneven streaky yellow margin .

Boggles my mind that 'Summer Breeze' and 'Last Dance' are sports of the VERY different 'Summer Music'. And SB and LD look a bit alike in colour, but certainly not in habit. LD is fertile - I have a seedling with a margin which is a reverse colour from LD - virtually a dead ringer for 'Dance With Me' which is another member of the family.

New in my garden this year, I can never remember that I have this one. I get this one confused with Summer Lovin, even though one is is the front and one is in the back. I'm sure one day, I'll pick another one up, forgetting that I already have it.

I still like this one. Not much change since last year though.

2014 update. Mine hasn't looked quite as wonderful over the last couple of years, but it's still there. There are definitely two crowns to it at some distance from each other. I will probably divide it next spring.

2015 - Aug. 13 Lasted quite well this year, but it doesn't seem to want to form any type of compact mound. I now have several eyes, all separated from each other.
