Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This large selection has powdery blue-green, wavy leaves, forming an upright vase-shaped mound distinguishing it from other Hosta. Lavender flowers appear in mid to late summer on even taller stems. Excellent specimen. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Good slug resistance. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others. Registered by Gus and Alma Krossa in 1980. Recipient of several awards, including a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (1993).
