A hybrid of H. 'Elvis Lives' × H. plantaginea, this is a
non-registered cultivar from
Ron Livingston of Michigan. The medium to large
size plant has shiny, medium green foliage. Its leaves are
rippled and have smooth texture. Whitish flowers bloom from
later July into August.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The flowers...appear pale purple from a distance, but
close examination reveals alternating tepal (petal and sepal)
colors. Three tepals appear near-white and the other three pale
purple. 'Elp 2' also makes an excellent breeding plant and is in
the background of such Ron Livingston cultivars as 'Black
Mamba', 'Dragon Heart', and 'Red Dragon'."
