I see that this entry doesn't come up in a search of S.o. of which this is a cultivar. It should be linked, somehow, if it is a cultivar. It looks nice. I wonder if someone who grows this and S. o. 'Tricolor' could tell us whether or not they look substantially different? @Kermit I tip my hat to you.

@HamiltonSquare

It is a cv. by Terra Nova Nuseries. http://www.terranovanurseries....

Terra Nova states "Our 'Silver Saber' has a cleaner variegation and a better habit than the old variegated type. Luscious pink tones in cooler weather."

We don't grow this one anymore. We have to purchase plugs and they sell very slowly. Hope you can find it somewhere.
