Hosta 'Ultramarine'

A plant from Mark Zilis of Illinois, this hybrid of H. 'Sea Lotus Leaf' × H. kikutii leuconata was registered in 2003. It is semi-upright in form and grows into a large size hosta about 20 inches high and 43 inches wide. The pale lavender flowers bloom starting in August.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Site in moderate shade to retain the wonderful blue coloring of the leaf. Rapid growth rate...The veins are so deeply impressed that they resemble corduroy fabric. Both the raceme and the scape have long, white, leafy bracts."
