Bill Dress's Blue

Hosta "Bill Dress's Blue" review

Seedling from one of the very first AHS seed exchanges. Has been around in rock gardening culture for years and years. A slightly stoloniferous blue mini that makes a platter-shaped clump. Lavender flowers. Fertile. This is a vigorous, ground-hugging miniature. It emerges blue and becomes blue-green by midsummer. This plant is smaller and more vigorous than Hosta 'Blue Moon' and Hosta 'Blue lce', although not quite as blue. The leaf has a pronounced heart shape and the scapes are straight and floriferous with light lavender blooms. A seedling of unknown parentage.
