This Tardiana-type cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered by
Peter Ruh of Ohio in 2002. Known in Europe as H. 'Blue Cherub', this hosta becomes
a medium size plant about 16 inches high with a spread
of 37 inches. Its rich blue-green foliage has thick
substance. Pale "bluish" lavender flowers bloom from
late July into August.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...the name 'Blue Cherub' was rejected because
'Lakeside Blue Cherub' has already been registered. The
name was altered to 'Azure Cherub' for registration
purposes...this will probably never be accepted by the
nursery industry...one of the bluest Tardiana-types ever
introduced and highly recommended."
