An unusual form of this white flowered evergreen groundcover with the new growth mostly yellow "fading" to the normal rich green as it matures. Low carpets for sun or shade, even quite dry.  15cm.

This form has been around for many years and seems to be the standard at the late Beth Chatto's garden in Essex, but has never been formally named and is rarely distributed elsewhere.

The new foliage is golden yellow with a light green margin that darkens and floods the whole leaf once it is fully formed.

We have had this since the early 1990s.
