Plant details

This pretty little hosta has rounded, attractive blue-grey leaves, narrowing to a point. Just 15cm (6in) long, the leaves become dimpled as they mature. The flowers are lavender-blue, bell-shaped and carried on glaucous stalks. This lovely hosta makes an excellent groundcover plant for the front of a shady border. It prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil.
