Tea Ceremony OS

M, Steve Moldovan is best known for his hundreds of daylily introductions, but he also worked on the side with hybridizing hostas.  We obtained TEA CEREMONY from him years ago and have enjoyed it thoroughly due to its distinctive nature. We finally have enough stock to offer it again. T.C. has heavy substanced blue-silver foliage with powdery overlay.  Rather heartshaped leaves becomes semi cupped with maturity. Distinctive and appreciated here.

$25.00
