Info=sieboldiana 'Ruffled'.
Truly ruffled H. sieboldiana 'Elegans'.
Large grayish blue wavy edged leaves are extremely thick and puckered. Makes a very imposing specimen up to 4' wide at maturity. Near white flowers.
The large rippled grayish blue leaves make an attractive clump! Very pale lavender flowers.
Spreading mound of large, blue-gray leaves with ruffled edges, whitish flowers.
One of the first large ruffled blues.
Dark green with glaucous bloom; rugose; many marginal ripples. Very striking for its ruffled, unruly character: slow growing during the first, then rapidly making up the loss in later years.
