Hosta 'Little Blue'
 

This seedling of H. ventricosa was introduced in the 1960s and  registered in 1976 by Larry Englerth of Michigan. This medium size (16 inches high) plant has leaves with a slightly rippled margin and distinct, long tip. The semi-bell-shaped flowers are bright purple and open from mid-July into August. It does not form viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...'Little Blue' is not little and it's not blue, but it does make a symmetrical mound of shiny, dark green foliage with an outstanding show of purple flowers in July...a triploid."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Lakeside Black Satin'.
