Dr. Dick and Jane Ward originated
this cultivar which they found as a seedling of H. 'Reginald
Kaye'. It was registered in 1998 and joins the ranks of large,
blue-green hostas, growing 26 to 30 inches high and about 53 inches wide.
The plant has thick substance and moderately corrugated leaves.
Near white flowers bloom starting in mid-June.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...ranks as an outstanding
blue-leaved cultivar with somewhat of an open mound habit."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Site in light to full shade to maintain the
wonderful leaf color."

H. 'Big Daddy',
Blue', H. 'Helen Doriot' and H. 'Lady in Waiting'.
