Piet de Rooij of the Netherlands registered this hybrid of a streaked form of H. 'Gray Cole' × H. 'Kifukurin Ubatake' in 2013. It has intensely blue-green leaves with creamy white streaked variegation. The foliage is lance shaped, moderately flat and glaucous on top. Pale lavender, tubular flowers bloom from July into August. It sets viable seeds.
