This is a Chester Skotak hybrid, and like most of his hybrids, it’s a very nice plant. I’ve been growing this plant for a year now, and it still impresses me.
As you can see, it has nice variegation that is relatively stable. In lots of sun the plant will get slightly red, but when it flowers the whole center turns a bright red, adding to its attraction. It forms a nice colony over time, forming its pups on elevated stolons. It’s relatively prolific and can handle our winters with only minor damage, a great plant for all gardens.
