its not very blue.. nor alligator-y ... i hope it matures properly for you ... even the new leaf isnt blue ...

was it bluer in spring???

is it in late afternoon sun/heat???

i presume that is drip irrigation so its not blasted with overhead water ... washing off the blue ...

The pic colors aren't very true. The Silk Kimono is greener and the Alligator Shoes is bluer than the pics show. SK is in the sunnier end of the bed.

Awesome, Kathy. Love 'Alligator Shoes' and it's one of my top 10, maybe top 5 after seeing pics of Steve's and Myrle's (I think it was Myrle's).

I'm thrilled to see these beautiful 'shoes. :)

It's one of now-20 I've put into new garden beds after 8 years in pots. This one is with 'Eye Declare,' 'Potomac Pride,' and one I can't ID anymore.

I look forward to it filling out next year, rather than having to struggle so badly.
