Hosta 'Blue Clown'

Introduced by Dr. Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict and registered by John and Elizabeth Stratton in 1996. It is a self-pollinated H. 'Dorset Blue' seedling with thick leaf substance which forms a small size (10 inches high by 15 inches wide), dense mound of foliage. It has medium lavender flowers from mid-July into August followed by viable seeds.

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), says that this plant falls into a category of "cultivars that exhibit many Tardiana traits but are not a part of Eric Smith's original group."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Very slow to increase...Best grown in a pot until it has established a root system."
