I thought I added this one last year but I have searched and searched and can't find the thread, so here it is again.

Name: H. ‘Korean Snow’ - 2008

Description: Very unique variegation...the glossy green leaves have good substance and are misted with fine creamy-white streaks throughout.
Size: Small (18"w x 12"h)
Origin: seedling of H. yingeri discovered by Bob Solberg at Niche Gardens in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Flowers: Small, dark purpl, spider-like in late summer.

Notes: This one is growing very well. I'm very fond of it. Streaked breeder. It's now quite mature, having been in my garden for 8 years.

I was looking at my shots of Korean Snow for this year and they weren't worth posting except for one flower shot. I had to go back to 2010 to get the best images.

You can see its H. yingeri heritage in the flower.

2014 is the 11th year in my garden for this one. It's not getting any large, but still looks good and yesterday I saw the start of flower buds on it. This picture from the end of June.

Here is mine from a few years ago. I dug it up and donated it to the MG plant sale a few years ago in desperation after a summer of deer and vole damage that topped everything. This year we returned from MI and there was no deer or vole damage. Our neighbors roaming dogs, a wet summer and a hunter putting his tree stand up on our property and scouting for bow season they are staying away. I guess I have so many plants crammed in that the voles have more to choose from. I think my Journey's End's problem could be due to vole damage - I will find out when I dig it to move it to a new spot. I may buy another KS as it was so beautiful. It was about 6 years old.
