Hosta 'Dorset Blueblood'

Registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2010, this very slow growing cultivar is a sport of H. 'Dorset Clown'. It is a small size hosta about 9 inches high by 22 inches wide with intensely blue-green foliage. The leaves are ovate shape, deeply wavy and heavily corrugated. It bears pale lavender flowers in July on scapes 15 to 20 inches tall but the viability of the seeds was unknown at the time of registration.
