Description

Reliable and hardy with countless combinations of leaf color, shape, and texture, broad leaves emerge from a central crown and develop into a mounded form. Leaves come in colors from bright green to gold and even blue tones; variegation can result in an edging or center of white, cream or gold; or splashes of color. Leaf texture varies and can be smooth, veined, or even puckered. Descriptions such as heart-shaped, lance-like, and cupped characterize different leaf shapes. The flower stalks hold bell-like blossoms of white or lavender to blue
