This is a beautiful, easy to grow hosta, but if you want to see something stunning plant it in a cobalt blue container!

A gorgeous, gorgeous hosta - strong growth, but dreamy, impressionistic colors.

Each seems to vary from another. Love the ones with wider blue edge.

I bought this as a young plant from Bowden Hostas in the UK in Spring 2000, planted in its present spot later that year. It has not looked back, and is now a healthy, compact plant which always flowers well, and makes seed. I have several seedlings growing from it, none like the parent but it has produced many shapes, colours and textures. Some light yellow and pointed, some darker and more rounded, it must cross well with the other varieites I have, it will be exciting to see what they turn out like. I would say it is a good 'pod' parent.
