Searching for "Bluest of Blue" Hostas w/Large, Broad Leaves

Stafford, VA(Zone 7a)

I'm designing a shade garden in my backyard and need help in finding the names of any hostas with large, wide leaves that are "blue" or blue tinged that do well in full shade. Any help is greatly appreciated!

This is a picture of a Gaurdian Angel which is a sport of Blue Angel. This one reverted back to a Blue Angel.

Thanks, franknjim! That's a great! I'm new to Daves Garden, not new to gardening, and am so thankful to have found this site! :)

Are those pictures taken at Hornbakers? That is such a beautiful place and well run. I usually make it there for the hosta walk, but probably won't this year if gas gets up to $5.00 a gallon :-(

Yes, that is Hornbaker Gardens. I took a bunch of pictures when I went to the open house last year.

Franknjim, the Guardian Angel is so beautiful! I had to leave a huge one behind when we moved a few years ago. :( I just started out with a new (very small) one again on Mother's Day. Can't wait for it to get wonderfully huge again!!
