Here is another of the Aden breeding breakthroughs... very thick glossy green foliage on a 18" diameter clump... so exquisite it almost looks edible. The clump is topped with equally exquisite very fragrant light lavender flowers on 15" scapes... one of the very best.
Glossy, thick and wavy bright green leaves and fragrant near white flowers.
Tightly massed, 4" long leaves are bright glossy green, slightly wavy. Rapid grower useful as a ground cover. Fragrant, almost white flowers in summer.
Rich glossy green leaves with unique texture and good substance make you look twice at this beauty. A plant truly worthy of it's name! Extremely fragrant pale lavender flowers in mid August. Keep this totally awesome plant watered and it can weather even 100 degree days in full sun! Some of it's benefits are: 1) glossy, 2) able to take full sun, 3) pest resistant, 4) floriferous and long blooming, and 5) highly fragrant like a lilac. (Plant 38x20)
Medium green plant of fairly heavy texture. Tolerates more sun. Fragrant lavendar flowers in mid summer.
Shiny, bright green; wedge-shaped, long point, very undulate.
