Little Blue

Hosta "Little Blue" review

=Hosta ventricosa 'Little Blue'. Small dark glossy green with dark purple flowers. Leaves narrower than ventricosa. Not blue or little, a smaller form of H.'ventricosa' with deep purple flowers. I don't think I've ever seen a description of this plant that didn't start with something like "neither little nor blue" or something similar. Well, it's not little and it's not blue, but it's just like ventricosa, only littler, with the same blue flowers. Dark satiny green, heart-shaped leaves. Medium green, thin leaves, oval to heart shaped.
