    The foliage of this decorative evergreen is beautifully variegated yellow and green, and when the temperatures drop, the leaf margins take on a rich pink hue. It forms a spikey rosette that has an architectural silhouette from which tall flowerspikes arise in summer. These are laden with pink buds, which open to blush coloured bells. This is a wonderful plant for illuminating gravel gardens - and it will also look great in a pot on the patio.
