InfoLong twisted leaves.
This Plant Delights hybrid has a sordid background involving H. longissima, 'Swoosh', 'Red Neck Heaven', and 'Elvis Lives'. That strange combination of genes produced a 1' tall x 30" wide clump of long, tapering, undulating blue-green leaves, bordered with stripes of yellow...reminiscent of the rapids in its namesake movie. The clumps are topped in early summer with 2' tall scapes of lavender flowers.
