Hosta 'Blue Sliver'

This is another hosta that has been involved in misnaming and identification. According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...'Blue Silver' was listed as a cultivar in Alex Malloy's review of Herb Benedict's introductions...but the plant has been marketed as 'Blue Sliver'..."

This H. 'Tardiana' seedling is a non-registered hosta introduced by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict in 1999. It forms a small (8 inches high) mound of narrowly ovate, blue green leaves with good substance. Pure white flowers appear in July.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Hadspen Heron'.
