Hosta 'Blue Babe'

Rod Lysne of Northern Grown Perennials in Wisconsin mentions this hosta as being part of the breeding program of Cynthia and Chet Tompkins of Oregon. It is in the background of his hosta, 'Dark Treasure'. Cynthia Tompkins did some of her hybridizing as long ago as the late 1920s so this could be a very old cultivar that may not exist anymore.

It is not mentioned in The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) which usually means that during his extensive travels, he did not encounter this plant among the 7,000 plants that he discusses.
