(Mature Size: 10"T x 20"W)
Pointed blue leaves are very blue in spring and more blue-green in summer as the waxy coating fades.
Leaves held on rich purple petioles that saturate the base of the leaf.
Bob Solberg says that this hosta resembles a bird in flight. It is a very waxy blue H. kikutii in form with nice purple petioles.
The leaf margins gently undulate, effortlessly gliding on a warm summer breeze.
Has been slow growing for us but the colors are amazing.
I grew one in a container by itself and was my favorite hosta for the 2017 season! Can't wait for next year!
It blooms in August with purple flowers on arching scapes and sets seed easily. It is love at first sight.
Why Should I Grow It? The colors! Site this one where you can enjoy and protect it.
