Good grower with lavender flowers.
An improved wider white edged sport of H. 'Francee'.
When 'Patriot' was introduced, we began scanning our stock of 'Francee' and found three plants with exceptionally wide, white margins. After evaluating these plants for a few years, one stood out as significantly different from 'Francee' and we began propagating it. In 1999 we registered this plant as 'Trailblazer'.
