The brightest white variegated form with beautiful pink tints to the new growth in spring. Pinkish flowers to 60cm. Less vigorous than the common form. Sun, ordinary soil.

A sport from 'Picta' found in Mervyn Feesey's garden Woodside in Devon.

It's not entirely clear whether 'Feesey' or 'Woodside' is the correct name but it has long been known as Feesey's Form so it seems that 'Feesey' is likely to be retained.
