Hosta 'Birchwood Blue'


This cultivar is part of the "Birchwood Series" of hostas from Florence Shaw of Massachusetts. It is a hybrid of H. 'Sieboldiana' x H. 'FRW No. 382' which was registered in 1986 by The American Hosta Society on her behalf. The characteristics are those of a typical H. 'Sieboldiana'-type plant with blue-green foliage. It is a large size plant about 24 inches high with a spread of around 36 inches. Pale lavender flowers on scapes up to 36 inches tall bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...may not exist." He also states that he suspects that this one hosta has been referred to or known by three names including H. 'Birchwood Blue', H. 'Birchwood Blue Beauty' and H. 'Blue Beauty'.
