About This Hosta

'Hosta 'Blushing Blue' is an unusual cross of H. longipes hypoglauca and H. Salute'. The grey green leaves are wavy and pointed and have good substance. There is a striking lavender flame that colours the petioles and travels up into the leaves right into the tip. This colouring is most vivid in the spring but lasts for a number of weeks. The leaves on the flower stem are also flushed with red. This new introduction from Belgium brings the quest for a red or purple hosta one step closer.
