A bright and lively variety of these ever popular plants. The new leaves on this one emerge chartreuse green in spring and turn to an acid lime colour throughout the summer. They form loose evergreen mounds and their colour makes a great contrast to darker greens in the border. The sprays of small white flowers in mid to late summer are a bonus. Try planting them in shadier corners to bring in a bit of light or pot them up and surround with seasonal bedding for a patio treat.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in early autumn and replant with the crown just above the surface of the soil. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the crown of the plant in spring.
