Hosta 'Blue Wedgwood'


This cultivar is a second generation Tardiana-type seedling was registered by the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society (BHHS) on behalf of the originator, Eric Smith in 1988.

The plant grows into a large size hosta about 19 inches high and 44 inches wide with intensely blue foliage. The leaves have thick substance, are slightly wavy and flat at the base. Pale bluish lavender flowers bloom in late July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "As one of the best of the Tardianas, 'Blue Wedgwood' ranks highly among all hostas for its blue foliage color, growth rate, and substance."

"Plant named H. 'Blue Wedgewood' by Summers, alluding to the wedge-shaped leaves, but registered as H. 'Blue Wedgwood', which is correct, referring to the light blue color of Jasperware made by Wedgwood & Sons. Both names are in use. Due to distribution errors some of the plants cultivated under this name are actually H. 'Blue Dimples', which does not have wedge-shaped leaves."
