Quote from Plant's Delight:
Light Shade Zone: 3-7
12" tall Origin: Hybrid
This new introduction is a sport of Bill Zumbar's highly prized H. 'Halcyon' hybrid, H. 'Dress Blues'. The small-growing upright blue hosta has a wide, creamy white pattern in the center of each long narrow blue leaf. Each 18" wide upright clump is topped with 18" tall spikes of light lavender flowers in early summer...perfect for a small spot needing a feature hosta. As with all white-centered hostas, some morning sun or high filtered shade will give best results.
