Hosta 'Blue Boy'

David Stone originated this cultivar in the 1960s and it was registered by The American Hosta Society on his behalf in 1986. It is a hybrid of H. nakaiana x H. 'Sieboldiana' which according to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...shows traits of both parents."

This plant forms a large size (19 inches high) mound of foliage with a cordate base and slight corrugation. Clusters of pale lavender flowers bloom on 34 inch tall scapes followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...shows true hybrid character. The flowers tend toward H. nakaiana while the foliage color and shape leans toward H. 'Sieboldiana'."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A useful ground cover and edging plant."
