'Delta Dawn' has large, round, lime/gold leaves with red centers and venation in the spring and fall. The coloration is fantastic. Part shade and average soil will make this easy to grow plant happy.

This plant looks great when the weather starts to warm up in early Spring. The color really starts to pop!
