Hosta 'Yankee Blue'

This cultivar is a hybrid of H. 'Blue Arrow' x Hosta nigrescens 'Elatior' that was registered by Bob Balitewicz in 1999. The large (21 inches high) plant has narrowly ovate leaves with a thick underside bloom. Its near white flowers bloom in late July to mid August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The appearance of this rich blue-leaved cultivar is all Tardiana, albeit at the large end of the size range."
