Hosta 'Blue Diamond'

This Tardiana-type seedling was registered by the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society on behalf of the originator, Eric Smith in 1988. The large size hosta grows to about 22 inches high with a width of around 49 inches. Its blue-green foliage is slightly wavy, slightly corrugated and has thick substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...ranks as one of the biggest of the Tardianas and is known for its very bright blue foliage." 

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Leaf color is much bluer in cooler climates. Moderate growth rate."
