Hosta 'Yankee Blue'

This cultivar is a hybrid of H. 'Blue Arrow' 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'.
