This 2000 release from Darrell Probst originated as a hybrid seedling of E. sempervirens 'Violet Queen' and E. grandiflorum 'Violet Queen' in the garden of the late Harold Epstein. As was the case, anytime Harold got a couple of queens together in his garden, something memorable happened...in this case, a 'Lavender Lady'. This 8" tall spreader is adorned with leaves that emerge, edged in deep red, which later morph to a netted green pattern. The deciduous clumps are topped in spring with a superb floral display of dark purple buds, opening to lavender flowers...outstanding!
