It's medium sized, a delicate soft blue and easy to grow.
I planted it out 2 years ago and it has formed a large clump since.

A perfect garden plant.

Very nice plant with a good shape.
Thought it was more of a blue/green... so┬┤now it might end up in the garden one day :wink:

That really is handsome. I'd want one, myself, except that I sort of went nuts over the past couple of years with the blue or glaucous green rippled hostas. Some day, I'll have more beds, and more room to get some blue or green ripply lovelies and space them out a bit. ;)
