This is one
of those cases where there are two hostas with the
same name. One is registered and,
therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Blue
while the other is a non-registered plant and needs
to be renamed to avoid further confusion.
This medium size
(14 inches high by 30 inches wide), blue-green cultivar was registered by
Jody Brennan of Pennsylvania in 1998.
It is noted for its intensely blue-green foliage
which has thick substance and is slightly rippled.
Pale lavender, tubular flowers bloom in July.
There is also a non-registered cultivar by
this name from
Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan. Of course, the registered plant takes precedence for the name, 'Blue Star'.
