Blue Umbrellas Hosta


This early Aden introduction has shiny blue-green leaves that will reach immense proportions. With its rapid growth rate and huge size it will quickly become a giant. Lavender flowers in early summer.

Paul Aden gave us this large plant in 1978. The parentage is 'Tokudama' x sieboldiana 'Elegans'. A mature clump may well be 4 1/2' x 3' tall. The light lavender flowers appear on 36" bloom scapes. It grows rapidly and prefers 1/2 to nearly full shade. It has excellent substance and texture. The giant blue-green cordate leaves are 12" long by 10" wide. The flowers are lavender.
