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)
slightly wavy and corrugated foliage with good substance. In
early to late August, it bears fragrant, pale lavender flowers
followed by viable seeds.
The Hostapedia by
(2009), this cultivar "...is notable for its good blue
foliage and fragrant flowers and was the first registered
cultivar to combine the two."
Field Guide to Hostas by
Mark Zilis (2014),
"...represented a breakthrough in the world of
hostas, i.e., a blue-leaved hosta bearing fragrant
flowers...it has proven to be a tremendous garden
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009)
states: "Vigorous...Among the few blue-leaved hostas with
fragrant flowers, although the fragrance is only
perceptible in the hot climates."
In an article in
The Hosta Journal Vol. 47 No. 2 - 2016, the author
described this plant's flowers as having a "Very Weak"
fragrance compared to other hostas.
