Hosta 'Blue Lightning'

Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan registered this streaked sport of H. 'Blue Umbrellas' in 2005. It forms a medium size (15 inches high by 24 inches wide) mound of foliage with very pale lavender flowers in early July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Inevitably, some shoots sport to more stable forms e.g. white-centered, white-margined, or all-green. Be sure to cut out non-true shoots as they appear."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Becomes more cream or blue-green on the margins and center as summer progresses. The scapes are streaked blue-green and cream to ivory. Increases rapidly...Reasonably stable for a streaked hosta. A wonderful breeding plant."
