H. 'Blue Shadows'

Windsor, CA(Zone 9b)

I was going through a catalogue (Bourgoundiens???) and saw a picture of the Hosta 'Blue Shadows'. I think it is stunning. Do any of you have it? Is it as beautiful as it looks in the catalogue? Xuling

I think ViolaAnn has it. Take a look at the "B" hosta name thread http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1215606/

Actually, just look at all them =) There's quite a collection going on some letters!

Yes, I have it. Won't post the pic as the link is above. It's a slow grower. If you want to check it's growth over the last 4 years in my garden, it's on this page - http://violaann.smugmug.com/Garden/Hostas-in-my-garden-A-B/7617361_qL3gHS/7

Very nice, thank you ViolaAnn. Xuling

Here is the Blue Shadows from my garden. Sorry the shot is a little blurry. I will echo the opinion that it is quite slow growing, but I will also say, it is one that almost always gets commented on. In my experience, it is very similar to Tokudama Aureonebulosa.

I've never been able to tell the difference between the two of them w/o looking at the marker until this year. But this year TA is already going brown and it didn't seem so vigorous; so I'm about to dig it up to see if there is root interference or something going on.

This is what the two of them looked like Aug. 3 - BS at the top.

2manyhosta, that is a great pic. it looks like the hosta is waving about under the crystal clear waters of a slowly flowing creek high up in the Sierras. Xuling

I dug my TA this afternoon and for some reason there seemed to be no root growth since I moved it 2 years ago. I've divided it into 5 divisions and planted all in my veggie garden to see if I can get it growing well again.

Xuling, you make a blurry photo sound so poetic! I appreciate that.
