This 1949 introduction from Lombart's Nursery in Holland makes a nice mound of twisty blue green foliage to 4' tall, with an equal spread....resembling a giant green meatball after spending too long in the microwave. In the winter, the foliage takes on a dramatic shade of cinnamon brown...a great anchor plant for the winter garden....and a great textural/color echo for those cinnamon bowling balls in the garden.
