$75.00 Northern Grown Perennials (2005) O.S.
Descriptions:
Dense, compact clump of blue leaves which exhibit a singularly strong silvery patina which is maintained far into summer. A mature clump measures about 24 inches across, with crown height of about 14 inches. Clump form is decidedly symmetrical and even. Foliage is very dense, and leaves are of heavy substance and distinctly pointed or 'lanced' in semi-elongated form. 'Lancelot' shows very good sun tolerance here. Our oldest clumps grow in 75% sun and show no scald. Since substance is very heavy, we encounter no slug problems as this hosta grows here.
Another positive attribute is its vigorous growth rate. 'Lancelot' far outstrips both parents on increase.
