Blue Flame

Hosta "Blue Flame" review

This is a new variegated sport of Hosta 'Fragrant Blue'... smooth heart-shaped leaves are a medium blue-green and framed by a variable yellow border that is narrow on some leaves and wider on others. The plant has proven to be a vigorous grower and blooms with near white flowers. Although the parent is said to be fragrant we have never been able to confirm this claim and do not believe Hosta 'Blue Flame' to be fragrant either. You will find a another plant by the name of Hosta 'Secret Love' from Jan van den Top of Holland which we are offering for the first time this year…the sports are both from Hosta 'Fragrant Blue' with one being found here and one in Holland. The plants are extremely similar, but we do think Jan's plant has a wider edge so we have decided to offer both plants.
