Hosta 'Baby Blue Eyes'


In 2006, Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina registered this hybrid which was the result of a cross of H. 'Cody' × H. 'Dorset Blue'. It is a low growing plant that only reaches 5 inches in height with a spread of 15 inches. The leaves have good substance and are slightly wavy. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July on scapes up to 14 inches tall.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to moderate growth rate...Smaller, with leaves not as seersuckered as its H. 'Dorset Blue' parent but keeping their excellent blue color well through the summer."

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "The attractive bloom on the leaves will be lost if it is grown in bright sunshine, but in light shade it is a rapid grower and increases quickly."
