This delightful new "species" was discovered in South Korea on Taehuksan Island, just west of the mainland. The stiff, narrow, wavy and glossy green leaves make a truly distinctive, upright, vase-shaped, 15" wide clump. As with H. yingeri, this new species has "spider-like" dark lavender flowers held much more spaced along the 3' tall scape. We think this will prove to be a hybrid between H. yingeri and H. jonesii, as H. laevigata is virtually self-sterile.
