Hosta 'Blueberry Waffles'

This hybrid of H. 'Spilt Milk' × H. 'Abiqua Drinking Gourd' was registered by Sandy and Rich Brown of Michigan in 2008. The plant grows into a giant size hosta around 30 inches in height and a spread of 66 inches. Its foliage is slightly rippled, heavily corrugated and broadly ovate with a cordate base. The leaves are glaucous on both the top and the bottom. Its near white flowers have slightly lavender stripes and bloom from June into July. The foliage starts the season blue-green but changes to dark green later.

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "...takes the top prize in the unruly, unsettled division of hostadom. Its deep blue-green color and cardboard-like substance also stand out...The breeding possibilities...should give every hybridizer beautiful dreams."
