Introduced in the 1970s, larger than nakainana, widely grown. Medium sized blue green with heart shaped leaves. Heart-shaped blue-green leaves with a thick texture; lavender flowers. Green heart-shaped leaves. Forms a neat, compact mound. White flowers. Thickly textured, green, heart-shaped leaves that form a compact mound. White flowers on 26" scapes. A larger heart shaped blue leaf (6"x5"). Flat medium textured leaves quickly intertwine for a mass of color. Mid-summer blooms make this one an eye-catcher, especially when planted in groups. 14"x28". Blooms white. Shade to 1/2 sun. Growth rapid.
