Plant Type: Hostas

Hosta Blue Ivory is a showy sport of the ever-popular ‘Halcyon’. It is a medium sized hosta with thick, slug resistant foliage in spring. The leaves display a wide, creamy white margin and blue center. By summer, the margins have brightened to white and the center deepens to blue-green. During the heat of late summer, a greenish blush may appear over portions of the margin. Lavender flowers are produced in midsummer.
