Good, strong growing variety with amazing powder blue, deeply veined and slightly wavy, heart shaped leaves which are produced throughout the growing season. This variety is considered one of the best blue Hostas for holding its colour right to the end of the season. Due to the density of growth it works well as a weed suppressor. The leaves are of good substance so show resistance to slug and rabbit damage. In mid-summer 58cm (23ins) tall green spikes are produced with delicate, fragrant bell-shaped flowers which are good for flower arrangements. It thrives in partial or full shade. As with all Hostas they will go completely dormant in winter so the withered foliage will need tidying away before spring time. Give a good feed and mulch well to get lusher leaves.

Hostas make ideal ground cover plants for sun or partial shade and once established can be left undisturbed for years. They thrive in well-drained but moisture retentive soils and this should be enriched with leaf-mould, well rotted compost or leaf-mould. The foliage is most attractive and in the summer the plants are crowned with racemes of nodding trumpet-like flowers which are attractive to bees and other pollinating insects. They are also good planted in pots and containers. The foliage will die down in the winter then re-shoot in the spring. Height & Spread: 50cm x 1m (20 x 40ins)
