Hosta 'Blue Mesa'

Registered by Randy Goodwin of Indiana in 2009, this small size (10 inches high by 36 inches wide) cultivar is of unidentified parentage. The lanceolate foliage is medium blue-green in color. Its leaves are heavily corrugated, moderately folded, slightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. Medium lavender flowers bloom in August on scapes 12 to 15 inches tall followed by viable seeds in blue-green pods.

The registration materials state: "Tardiana type in color tones, long thin leaves add to uniqueness...turns green by end of the season ."

Mesa is the Spanish term for tableland, an elevated area of land with a flat top and sides that are usually steep cliffs.
