Hosta 'Blue Rock'
 

The size, color and other traits of this cultivar indicate that H. 'Elegans' is in its background. It was registered by The American Hosta Society in 1986 on behalf of the originators, David Stone of Connecticut and Eunice V. Fisher of Wisconsin.

The giant size mound stands about 28 inches tall and spreads to 5 feet or more in width. Typical of the type, it has thick substance and heavily corrugated leaves that have a deep lobe at the base. Clusters of near white flowers bloom in June and July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...was known as 'Stone's Blue'. Eunice V. Fisher changed the name and introduced it for sale...comes somewhere between a 'Sieboldiana' and 'Tokudama'."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Hirao Zeus' and H. 'Love Pat'.
