Hosta 'Rhapsody in Blue'

A seedling of the species, H. rupifraga, this cultivar was registered jointly by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict and Dr. Jim and Jill Wilkins, all of Michigan in 1996. It forms a medium size (15 inches high) mound of very wavy, smooth textured foliage. Pale purple flowers open from mid-August into September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The waviness and rich blue foliage color give 'Rhapsody in Blue' its distinctive appearance."

Seedlings of this cultivar include H. 'Good Vibrations', H. 'Happily Ever After' and H. 'Once upon a Time'.
