(Mature Size: 18"T x 36"W)
"Lederhosen" is German for leather britches and 'Lederhosen' Hosta fits that description!
This blue hosta has thick elongated leaves with a wavy margin that are tough and leather like.
Vigorous hosta that emerges a soft blue in spring. By mid-summer the leaves are a shiny dark green.
I absolutely love the flower buds before they open.
Periwinkle buds have purple stripes that open to fragrant lavender-blue flowers in late summer.
In "The Hostaspedia" Mark Zilis writes of the flowers, "comes closest to blue of any hosta that I've ever seen".
