Hosta 'Fragrant Blue'

Originated by Dr Kevin Vaughn, Paul Aden registered this cultivar in 1988 as a hybrid of two seedling plants. This was later changed to origination by Vaughn and registration by the AHS itself in 2012. It grows into a large size (20 inches high) mound with slightly wavy and corrugated foliage with good substance. In early to late August, it bears fragrant, pale lavender flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar " notable for its good blue foliage and fragrant flowers and was the first registered cultivar to combine the two."

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "...represented a breakthrough in the world of hostas, i.e., a blue-leaved hosta bearing fragrant has proven to be a tremendous garden plant."
