Description

Details

This 2' wide clump of round blue leaves (pointed when young) is one of the finest blue hostas, holding its color well. It is a vigorous grower, has good substance and is easy to grow. Reported to be somewhat tolerant of summer blight. Blue scale 2 (on a scale of 1-6, one being the bluest). This won the Best Blue Leaf Award at the AHS Convention in 1992. A first generation Tardiana ("TF 1 x 7") (Photos courtesy Walters Gardens Inc.)
