Hosta 'Quilted Skies'
 

Margorie Soules registered this cultivar in 1985 as a hybrid of H. 'Sieboldiana' × H. 'Frances Williams'. The large size (22 inches high) mound of heavily corrugated foliage has thick substance and bears near white flowers from late June into July.

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), says that this plant falls into a group in the H. 'Sieboldiana' species and consists of "registered seedlings that have either 'Elegans' or an 'Elegans' sport (e.g. 'Frances Williams', 'Northern Halo', etc.) as a parent. All of these have blue-green foliage and represent the range of 'Elegans' types that can be found."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Helen Doriot' and H. 'Indianapolis Blue'.
