I like H.'Ivory Coast' too a lot. Mine just got 1 1/2 inches rain and sits right after a downspout from one gutter. I planted it 3 years ago as multi-eyes in some afternoon sun. I also do not notice any blemishes, am very happy with it.

Hostahillbilly and Bernd, your Ivory Coasts are beautiful. I've seen IC referred to as a smaller version of Saegae. I didn't have luck with my Saegae, so I bought Super Sagae. I also have Liberty. Is IC smaller than Sagae and Liberty? If so I might be able to make room for that one too.

Liberty can get up to 30 inches high x 48 in wide, leaf 13x10.
Ivory Coast can get up to 20H x 24W, leaf 10x8.
My IC is 16H x 36W, leaf 10x8. My Liberty is much larger than IC.

Bernd, so it is shorter than Liberty. How long has your IC been in the ground?

I planted H.'Liberty' and 'Ivory Coast' both in 2009. They were multi-eye plants growing in pots then. Both get some midday or early afternoon sun.

Isn't 'Majesty' a look-a-like as well ?

Anyone got pics ?

Thanks,

Here's a photo of a young Majesty purchased about a month ago.

My H.'Majesty' is also small, but I have two H.'Liberty's and they really put interest into the usual blue/green/yellow landscape. We all should have several of these large blue with wide white border plants.
