InfoIntense, long-lasting blue color.
A few years ago the Stegemans gave us H. 'Skylight' and now they bring us another outstanding blue that is certain to become a classic. The symmetrical clump holds it's intensely blue-green leaves in an upright manner with the somewhat folded, flat leaves filling every space. H. 'Smoke Signals' will maintain its color late into the season and be topped with lavender flowers.
