From England's Ray Brown, comes this eye catching, lip dropping, hair raising selection of A. flabellata. Ray noticed a seedling with a dramatic white edge to the new growth in spring. To his delight, his find came true from seed. The stocky A. flabellata with its attractive glaucous foliage now boasts a wide frosty border during the spring season (fades in midsummer). The clumps are topped with 1' stems of blue flowers with white centers in spring...absolutely me!
