This is a blue-green 'Tokudama' hybrid which as the name indicates comes to us from Betcher (1986). Early in the season the leaves are very blue. By September they are a deep green. The undersides are glossy while the tops are coated with bloom for only part of the season. The mature mound measures measures 24 x 10" with a 12-15" bloom scape. The leaves are cordate and cupping appears as the plant matures.
