Quick Overview:

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.

Description

Easily grown in evenly moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Best in part shade (some morning sun or sun dappled conditions). Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Full size and quality form are best achieved with consistent moisture. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves. Divide plants as needed in spring or autumn. Division is usually easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl. Plant in locations protected from wind.
