Blue Canoe

Hosta "Blue Canoe" review

Unusual blue, cupped Hosta. Many of you remember the delightful Gwen Black popping up here and there at the 2001 AHS Convention in Raleigh clutching a photo of Hosta 'Blue Canoe' and professing it TIS blue at home! several years ago when she graciously bestowed a piece of her precious clump upon us it WAS blue. For some unexplainable reason the plant has decided it will be chartreuse in the states (we have heard this from all that have it). The leaves have good substance and are folded giving a canoe-like appearance. Topped with pale lavender flowers in early summer. See if you can be the first to turn it blue and alert the world to its secret.
