Hosta 'Blue Heaven'

The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), 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." Paul Aden registered this cultivar in 1976 as a cross between H. 'Blue Cadet' and a seedling.

This cultivar forms a medium (17 inches high) mound of thick substanced leaves. Pale lavender flowers bloom in late July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "It has some of the bluest foliage of all hostas, tending to keep its color until late summer."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Blue Dimples'.
