Quick Overview

The foliage is quite unlike any other. Leaves are very deeply lobed in an irregular fashion, and occasionally fasciated. Flowers are normal for the species, a few sterile white lacecaps around the edge of the inflorescence.

The foliage is extremely distinctive. Leaves are very dark green, heavily lobed and fringed. Flowers are normal for the species, attractive white lacecaps. The plant grows very easily and forms a dense non-flopping upright mound. We originally received this as 'Green Dragon', later were told the name should be 'Emerald Lace', but now the originator has stepped forward and set the record straight with the name 'Riven Lace'.
