A sport of C.k 'Satomi' from Japan. The leaves have a green center with wide irregular margins of creamy white and pink. The flowers are not totally pink, but with the attractive variegation we can't expect everything!

Info

Rarely available; selected as a sport branch on 'Satomi' at Shibamichi Nursery in Japan. It has white-variegated foliage similar to 'Wolf Eyes', but the flower bracts are irregularly specked with pink. With irrigation it is not as susceptible to sunburn in Oregon, but reports from TN growers suggest that it may do best there in partial shade or on a north facing slope to protect it from the worst of late afternoon summer heat.
