Hosta 'Hovercraft'

Registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2017, this medium size (16 inches high by 30 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of an unnamed seedling of H. laevigata. The leaves are intensely powdery blue-green, nearly round, moderately cupped, corrugated and have a glaucous bloom on top. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July on scapes about 20 inches tall. It sets viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Very powdery blue, slightly rugose leaves cup downward as they emerge from the very glaucous petioles, giving the appearance of multiple "hovercrafts" when viewed from above. The many pods on its scapes prove it communicates very well."
