Descriptions:
STREAKED blue - green, yellow, and cream, round, corrugated, cupped, and wavy foliage. 23" tall upright plant.
One of the more popular breeding plants in recent history coming from Ed Elslager's program, this cross of H. 'William Lachman' × H. hypoleuca has produced some dandy offspring. Medium blue-green streaked leaves have a medium blue green margin which is slightly rippled, slightly shiny on top, glaucous bloom underneath, and a petiole that is streaked. Put it all on a medium-small upright growing clump and you have the picture.
