Plant Type: Hostas

2023 Hosta of the Year!

This unique blue hosta is popular among hosta collectors and makes a very nice specimen in the home garden.

In spring, the narrow wedge-shaped leaves are bright glaucous blue and they hold their color well.  As the season progresses they turn more blue-green.  The heavily rippled leaves are of good substance, displaying some slug resistance. This hosta has a lovely cascading form that is displayed to best effect when planted on a ledge or in a container.

Lavender flowers are produced on arching scapes in late summer to early fall.
