Need ID #2

Bought this one in 2009 without a tag. I guessed it as Heartsong or Allen P McConnell. It is wet in the picture so normally it isn't shiny. Its corrugated has a small white line around the leaf border and the color doesnt change throughout the season.

APM is a much smaller plant .. this one is going to be pretty big...


RE: Need ID #2

Here's a Heartsong from a tour garden for comparison.

Hmmm...maybe a small Alligator Shoes? The flower color seems to be right.

If it drawstrings, then maybe Creme de Menthe, but I think the flower color on Creme de Menthe is near white.

RE: Need ID #2

It doesn't drawstring and the leaves are too small to be Alligator Shoes. The 3 year old clump is 12-18" across. It looks to me a lot like the above pic provided by Paul.

RE: Need ID #2

Could it be Sagae?
