20" tall. Light Shade.
We could best describe this cross as a probable hybrid between H. pycnophylla and H. sieboldiana. The thick flattened blue green leaves are heavily corrugated and backed with white. In very late summer, the clumps are topped with 2' scapes of lavender flowers... a superbly distinctive specimen clump!
In addition to being a beautiful plant for the garden, this one has been very popular as a BREEDER. Bluish green leaves are white on the underside.
