Hosta 'Arctic Blast'

This cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Komodo Dragon' × H. 'Elvis Lives' originated by Monty and Julie Carlson of Minnesota. It was registered on their behalf by Registrar, Gayle Hatley Alley for The American Hosta Society.

The medium size hosta is about 12 inches high by 23 inches wide with rich blue-green foliage. Its leaves are narrowly ovate, heavily rippled and have moderate bloom on the bottom. Pale purple flowers bloom in July on scapes about 30 inches tall.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A most desirable recent introduction which will be welcomed by all collectors of blue-leaved hostas...Leaves larger than those of the H. 'Elvis Lives' parent and with more-pronounced rippled edges."
