Blue Whirls

Hosta "Blue Whirls" review

Silver blue lanceolate foliage. Clump is a very symmetrical, swirling form. White flowers. Heavy bloomer. Medium large with silvery blue leaves and symmetrical growth habit. Silvery blue-green leaves, foliage mound grows very symmetrical; white flowers. A hybrid of Hosta Blue Vision, with similar leaf characteristics but smaller (9" x 7"). An erect open clump when young but develops a symmetrical thick mound when mature. A multitude of white blooms contrast well with the satin blue leaves. 20" x 30". Shade to 1/2 sun. Growth average. There are several plants on the market under this name, but this is the one that fits the description of the International Registration Authority for Hosta. Long, slender, silvery blue foliage swirling around in a symmetrical form. White flowers.
