With 'Halcyon' as a pollen parent, 'Border Bandit' has excellent substance. The dimensions of this 1992 Lachman introduction are 10 x 9" with a 15" bloom scape. The leaves are ovate with a rounded base. The central area of the leaf is blue-green, while the 1" margins are a creamy white with some streaking between the areas. The margin is modestly rippled and the whole leaf is slightly twisted. The upper side of the leaf is very glossy while the underside is matte. Tubular lavender flowers bloom in late August.
