A stunning creation of emerald green leaves making a 4' wide clump. Heavily veined leaves with deep pie crusted, rippled edges. This hybrid reminds you of a waterfall with each graceful arching leaf. The 4' flower scapes have fertile violet flowers. Use the pollen for great ruffled edges. The older your plant, the more prominent the veining and rippling. Highly sought after.
