Hosta 'Blue Valentine'
aka Hosta 'Valentine Blue'

This Tardiana-type hosta was originated by Dr. Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict of Michigan and registered on their behalf by Rod Kuenster and The American Hosta Society in 2010, this cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It forms a miniature size (5 inches high by 10 inches wide) hosta with blue-green foliage. The leaves are broadly ovate, slightly corrugated and shiny on top with thick substance.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I've seen this listed as 'Valentine Blue'...No doubt, it is one of the many descendants of 'Dorset Blue' or 'Blue Moon' from Herb Benedict."
