Hosta 'Blue and Gold'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neither is registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the other would have to be renamed.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I've seen two plants with this name. One is purportedly a gold-margined sport of 'Hadspen Blue' that I noticed in Alex Summers' collection in 'Honeysong Blue and Gold'..." The leaves are broadly ovate, cupped and moderately corrugated. It bears very pale lavender flowers in clusters from late July into August followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The other plant, probably from Herb Benedict, resides in Audra Wilson's wonderful Iowa garden. It appears to be a 'Tokudama'-type with foliage that varies from blue-green with gold streaks to blue-green with a wide, gold to creamy white margin."

A cultivar by this name was listed on the Hosta Library.
