E. ‘Ember Lace’ along with E. ‘Cleopatra’ is a popular pink and green-leaved cultivar. It is not as widely grown as it once was, and is not seen as frequently as ‘Cleopatra’. It must be managed carefully to avoid reversion of the plant to an all-green form. Crowns and stolons without the variegation must be ruthlessly removed.
‘Ember Lace’ was introduced in 1958, and is a sport of a seedling produced by an old hybrid E. ×wilsonii which is a cross of E. lilacina ‘Cuprea’ and E. cupreata.
