Originated by Rick Goodenough of Massachusetts, this non-registered cultivar is a seedling
of H. 'Blueberry Muffin' ×
H. 'Mr Jack'.
It is a large size hosta with heavy blue-green foliage
and red petioles. The color extends up into the leaf
base and veins. This cultivar is a bit larger than the
parent and its red color stays longer into the summer.
'Jack Be Nimble' is an excellent breeding plant for
blue-green hostas with red petioles. It is a full
sibling to H. 'Jack Berry'.
