Niko is a 'Fortunei Hyacinthina' sport. I have had this one since 2009.

I have two Niko plants. The one shown above is in my backyard garden. This one is in a side garden with sports of Whirlwind (even though it's not - Niko is a Gold Standard sport).
That's Mr Blue top/right corner, Gold Standard top/left corner and Whirligig (a Whirlwind sport) top/center.

An all gold leaf.

The whole garden (almost) - it had been a lot bigger until the fence went in that tries to slowdown the deer. I need to add a Whirlwind in here - there had been a tiny piece in there many years ago but it's gone now. There were some pieces in the space beyond the fence but that's pretty well overgrown now - I need to clean it up, it's got a huge Seducer and June in there.
The Mr Blue stands out. Niko is on the left with Gold Standard behind. Brenda's Beauty is on the right with Dust Devil (a Whirlwind sport) above it to the left. That's Victor top/center (another Whirlwind sport).
