Hosta 'Steel Canopy'
 

Registered by Stuart Asch of Michigan in 2000, this cultivar is a seedling of an H. 'Dorothy Benedict' seedling. The large size hosta with blue-green foliage grows to around 24 inches in height with a spread of around 45 inches. Its pale lavender flowers bloom from late June into July on scapes up to 28 inches tall.

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "One of my older plants that has rugged blue leaves as the name implies. Some leaves have an occasional streak to them but this is not consistent. The near white flowers of summer really makes this plant stick out."
