Hosta 'Wheaton Blue'

Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this sport of H. 'Paul's Glory' in 1999 in honor of Wheaton, Illinois. It forms a large size (23 inches high) mound of moderately corrugated foliage with good substance. The pale lavender flowers are borne from mid-July into August.

Mark Zilis' nursery is located near Wheaton, Illinois.

Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (1994 Vol. 25 No. 2) writes, "In tissue culture, an all-blue sport of the very handsome, widely acclaimed, yellow-centered, blue-margined 'Paul's Glory' has been found and introduced. It's being called 'Wheaton Blue'...But isn't 'Paul's Glory' a sport of 'Perry's True Blue', and, therefore, shouldn't the blue sport of 'Paul's Glory' be called 'Perry's True Blue'? be exact, 'Paul's Glory' was found in a clump of 'Perry's True Blue', so it just might be a seedling and not a sport. Mark Zilis apparently thinks it's best to give the blue sport of 'Paul's Glory' a new cultivar name."
