Hosta 'Best Friend'


Originated by Don Dean of Minnesota and registered by David Poos of Minnesota in 2020, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Astral Bliss' × H. 'Purple Verticulated Elf'. It is a small size (8.5 inches high by 22 inches wide) hosta with intense blue-green foliage. The leaves are ovate shaped, slightly wavy and dull on top with petioles with burgundy speckles. Pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers with translucent margins bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 12 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Strong substance and long-lasting intense blue-green color."
