  • IB 'Leibling' - the white beards are tipped yellow in the center, and become bright orange in the throat.
'Leibling' bloomed at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum (zone 4b), approximately, May 29 - June 7, in 2017. It had a very thin edging of purple color on the spathes, but didn't show any purple based foliage at the base of the leaves. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 02 Aug 2017
