Size: Mini (10"w x 5"h)

Notes: This one is an enthusiastic mini - with a fast growth rate for a white-leaved plant. BTW, this is just one clump of it. At one time I decided to make a border of it and divided it. However, I've rethought that and will move it back to a large clump.

I had a bright idea to divide this one and make a border, but it didn't work well. Have replanted all the divisions close together and hope it recovers well.

This one had a lot of solid green in 2013 and even though I never cut it out, there is much less in 2014. Still pretty small, but hanging on. Photo from July 16, 2014.

2016 update - I think I need to put this one back in a pot.
