A very elegant sport of T. ‘Empress’ with cream and deep green variegated leaves and dark stems. The orchid-like flowers are heavily purple spotted over a white base. Flowers from August through September atop a compact plant. Prefers moist, woodland conditions. The Japanese will hold this one high! The roots need to be warm for the leaves to express the variegation.
