Hosta 'Brother Ronald'

This Tardiana-type hosta has dark blue-green foliage of thick substance. It was registered by the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society (BHHS) on behalf of the originator, Eric Smith in 1988.   This medium size (16 inches high) cultivar has slightly cupped and moderately corrugated foliage. It has pure white flowers that appear in July to early August followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), it was formerly known as 'TF 2 X 30" and 'Hadspen White'.

Mark Zilis (2009) states that this cultivar "...has always been my favorite Tardiana. It offers an attractive combination of blue foliage and white flowers."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Among the bluest of the Tardiana Group."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Blue Jay', H. 'Hadspen Blue'. H. 'Osprey' and H. 'September White'.
