After such a long, long winter – and the spring that wasn’t – the colors in the hosta sales area are amazing. This week – I’m featuring Blue Hawaii and Dancing Queen.
Blue Hawaii – This plant has been out on the market place for many years, but when going through my production house a few weeks ago – it did stop me in my tracks. It was one of the bluest hosta plants that I have seen. Much bluer than some of the others next to it. Large, lightly puckered round leaves, it will have a more upright vase-shaped appearance. Vigorous and will maintain it’s color throughout the summer. It will tolerate some sun, and the fragrant white flowers bloom mid-summer. This plant is considered a large hosta.
Dancing Queen – This is an exceptionally unique yellow hosta – it emerges bright yellow and remains yellow all season. A definite improvement for yellow hostas. It has large leaves that display a prominent pie crust edge. Pale lavender flowers will bloom mid-summer from this medium size plant. In my shade garden, the yellow hosta light up the woods right now.
