Hosta 'Blue Jeans Bling'

 

Registered by Doug Ruff of Minnesota in 2019, this rhizomatous, this large size (21 inches high by 36 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Fickle Blue Jeans' H. 'Queen of the Seas'. It has medium blue-green foliage with a creamy white medial (center) variegation. The broadly ovate leaves are heavily rippled at the margins and dull on top with widely spaced, prominent veins. Near white flowers bloom from July into August on blue-green scapes 20 to 25 inches tall followed by viable seeds in blue-green pods.

The registration materials state: "...Blue-green leaves have thin creamy margins with tight ripples."

 

An article titled Standout Hostas of 2020 by Josh Spece of In The Country Garden & Gifts in Iowa in The Online Hosta Journal (Vol. 51 Online 2020) states that, "Hosta 'Blue Jeans Bling' was released mid- summer and is the first of Doug Ruff's hybrids to come to market. It is a cross of 'Fickle Blue Genes' x 'Queen of the Seas' with lightly dimpled and gently cupped, blue-green leaves, rimmed by strongly ruffled, narrow white margins. Even the young plants showed eye-catching rippled leaf edges. A couple more years of growth should reveal a very beautiful plant."
