Hosta 'Blue June'

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."

This cultivar is a hybrid of H. 'Blue Diamond' and a Tardiana seedling that was registered in 1987 by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict. It forms a medium sized mound of foliage that has a thick substance and comes to a tip.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Its name is derived from its early blooming time, perhaps one of the earliest for Tardiana type cultivars."

Seedlings of this cultivar include H. 'Starry Starry Night'.
