  • Well-branched, tidy habit is irresistible to shoppers. 
  • Performs well in landscapes, patio planters and mixed containers.

Lime Vein shows less veining and less to no rose midrib in the mahogany heart under brighter shade. In deeper shade, vein pattern is stronger and rose may appear in the mahogany heart at midrib.
