Hosta 'Blue Cups'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neither is registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the other would have to be renamed.


This non-registered cultivar of unidentified parentage is from Felix Jury of New Zealand. It is a large size hosta about 23 inches high by 47 inches wide with blue-green foliage. As the name implies, the leaves are deeply cupped and are also broadly ovate, somewhat unruly and have thick substance.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), " was listed as 'Kiwi Blue Cups', then 'Blue Cup', and finally as 'Blue Cups'."

Felix Jury was a well-known breeder of Magnolias in New Zealand.

A cultivar by this name was listed on the Hosta Library.
