This non-registered cultivar is a small size (6 inches
high by 12 inches wide) hosta which is a hybrid of H.
'Blue Cadet' from
of Connecticut. The foliage emerges in the spring in a
cream color with blue-green mottling. As the season
progresses, the older leaves darken in the blue-green
areas. White flowers bloom in July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...observed
in the Wade & Gatton Nurseries collection in 1993; may
no longer exist."
We suspect that the plant that Mark observed
was a different hosta, perhaps a creation of
Van Wade. The one pictured above was for sale at the vendor's area of the 2017
National Convention of
The American Hosta Society.
