Ina and Roland -

I think of Habranthus brachyandrus having the most glaucous blue-grey
foliage of the all the Habranthus I grow but it is most apparent for me on
the newly emerged foliage and especially in stronger sun become greener as
the season progresses.
I wouldn't rely on it but often my own mystery bulbs that turn up
occasionally that have bluer foliage do turn out to be H. brachyandrus. I
was going more on the coloration and orientation of the buds. I put
together album together of the Habranthus flower pictures I was growing in
response to the conversation we about H. robustus in early December. Here
is the link to that:
