Having arrived in our garden as an unlabeled discount nursery purchase, its cultivar name is uncertain, but it appears to be a good match to 'Aureoreticulata'. As shown in the photo above right, the golden coloration fades away later in the year. Until this year, I believed it was a non-flowering cultivar, but then I saw the flowers. The garden is full of surprises. The plain species is invasive, but this one is much less vigorous (although, after a few years of unrestrained growth on our back berm, it has claimed quite some space for itself).

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
