Hosta 'Blue Danube'


Eric Smith introduced this second generation Tardiana-type seedling in the 1960s. It was registered by the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society (BHHS) on behalf of Smith in 1988. The plant forms a large size hosta about 18 inches high by about 4 feet wide. The leaves have thick substance and are slug resistant. Its pale lavender flowers bloom in late July.

  According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), " blue foliage and outstanding substance. Its only negative is a fairly slow growth rate, but that should not deter anyone from growing this great hosta."

There is also a German cultivar named: H. 'Donauwalzer' which translates into Blue Danube Waltz
