Blue Solaise Leek

I've have looked for these for years, grew them in the 90's and really have missed them! These will get big, the size of your forearm kind of big; space and time depending of course. They love my coastal climate and tolerate cold down to -5C or more for short periods without damage. I often still had some in the garden when planting the next years crop.
