Hosta 'Yankee Blue'

This cultivar is a hybrid of H. 'Blue Arrow' x H. nigrescens 'Elatior' that was registered by Bob Balitewicz in 1999. The large size (21 inches high by about 56 inches wide) plant has narrowly ovate leaves with a thick underside bloom. Its near white flowers bloom from late July into mid-August followed by viable seeds.

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."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "A vigorous, rapid increaser for a blue-leaved hosta."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Biddy's Blue', H. 'Blue Arrow' and H. 'Indiana Blue'.
