Hosta "Salute" review

14" tall. Light Shade. Narrow, pointed blue leaves which are held erect to form a vase shaped upright clump. Wavy edges and twisty tips. Different. From Herb Benedict's breeding line of Hosta 'Dorset Blue', comes this 4th generation seedling. Hosta 'Salute' is a uniquely upright grower in the habit of a dwarf Hosta 'Krossa Regal'. Each 8" long x 4" wide slightly wavy leaf of powdery blue color is held upright on this compact clump. In early summer, the wide clump is topped with 2' scapes of nearly white flowers... .very unique! Nice upright clump of pointed blue leaves with near white flowers. Upright blue similar to 'Hadspen Heron'. Upright, pointed, blue leaves with wavy edges indeed do seem to be saluting. Very nice! Near white flowers. Narrow blue leaves, pointed and slightly folded, with somewhat wavy margins.  The leaf tips point upward, forming a vase-shaped plant. A new and exciting blue, small to medium Hosta. Narrow, pointed leaves are held erect. Plants form an upright vase-shaped clump 30cm wide by 23cm high. This Hosta is highly rated worldwide with a unique form. Near white flowers.
