Info

Cuttings from Kay and Gary's private garden at Gee Farms. This is the most incredible powder blue plant with a broad columnar habit; it looks spray-painted. Better still, it survived the two -29 °F winters from hell without a scratch, unheard of for a lawsoniana. Everyone, who saw it fell in love, alas there was only the single plant, which was not for sale. The name given to Gary was Van Pelts so naturally, he scoured the West Coast looking for more but alas, they are not the same.
