Seeing a mature clump of 'Guardian Angel' is a heavenly experience. A very distinct hosta with several color changes throughout the summer.

Description

Details

Similar to and possibly the same as H. 'Angel Eyes'. Emerges in early spring with each leaf a bright creamy white. At some point the center becomes light green with blue-green margin. Later in the season the center fades to leave a simply stunning large blue hosta, ultimately 5' wide. The variegation is not evident on the leaves emerging in the summer heat, it may not change as much if grown in a cooler climate. As to the viability of the seeds, pods are evident on H. 'Guardian Angel' and a few seeds may germinate but success is rare. (Photos courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.)

This Hostas stands out among many different varieties. The different hues of green are amazing and it almost has a blue tone when compared to other variegated plants. (Posted on June 5, 2017)
