This award winning Hosta forms a dense mound of flat, spear shaped, silvery blue-green leaves that retain their blue color longer then other blue varieties. Pale, lilac-blue, bell shaped flowers rise above the foliage in August attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to the shaded garden. A slower growing hosta that takes several years to reach its mature size, its a dependable and versatile perennial requiring little and giving excellent texture and flowers to the shaded garden. Because of it smaller stature, it is the perfect Hosta for massing in the front of the garden, spotting in small, shady landscape spots or using as part of a stunning, mixed perennial and annual container for a shady deck or patio. American Hosta Society Distinguished Merit Hosta Award (1987).
