This large hosta is prized for holding its beautiful blue color long into the season, even when planted in 2/3 day of sun.  Its huge leaves emerge slowly, exhibiting a unique cupped, rippled, corrugated texture.  They unfold slowly as they mature.  Since they are of thick substance, the leaves are more slug resistant.

This large hosta has a good growth rate compared to some other large blues.

Near-white flowers begin to appear in midsummer and last into late summer.

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
