Hosta 'Blazing Saddles'

Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina introduced this cross of an H. 'Beatrice' seedling x H. 'Blue Umbrellas'. It was registered in 2000.   The plant grows into a large size clump about 18 inches in height and spreads out about 44 inches in width. The yellow marginal variegation changes to creamy white later in the season. Its leaves are moderately corrugated and have a light coating of wax. The pale purple flowers are borne in July into August on scapes that rise to 40 inches in height.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...offers impressive, white-margined foliage, an attractive mound habit, and a vigorous growth rate, making it an ideal choice for landscape usage."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A vigorous, slow to moderate grower...Makes a superb border plant when accentuated by accompanying contrasting lacy foliage."
