Hosta 'Liberty Blues'

Originated by Mary Vertz of Wisconsin, this cultivar was registered in 2021 as having unidentified parentage. It is a giant size (35 inches high by 47 inches wide) hosta with blue-green foliage. The broadly ovate leaves are moderately corrugated and slightly wavy. It bears near white, tubular shape flowers from June into July and sets seed but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

According to the Registration materials: "Intense blue corrugated leaves remain blue until late summer even when exposed to full sun until noon.  Bluish hue lasts into October.  Heavy rains do nothing to wash away the blue.  Heavily flowered scapes rise above the foliage...blue color holds through summer keeping a slight blue cast through to fall..."
