The dramatic foliage sports a pellucid glaucous surface "bloom." This is Chahinian's clone (which seems very very close to Grigsby's "Special Clone" or "Super Form") which will eventually produce prodigious large thick leaves far more erect than the other species forms with a ghostly surface tone and paperlike edge. Sl...
