Hosta 'Blueberry Muffin'

Hosta

Plant Type: Perennial

This excellent blue hosta is a strong grower and reliable performer in the landscape. It forms a medium sized mound of large, blue, rounded leaves that are rugose and puckered in unusual patterns. Late in the season, the foliage transitions to green. Attractive light mauve speckles appear on the petioles.

Lavender flowers on proportional scapes just above the foliage in early summer.

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.

This premium hosta variety is part of a group of the finest hostas available today. Members of this collection were evaluated and selected by a group of specialty hosta growers in zones 4-7, who together have a combined total of over 150 years of hosta growing experience. To be considered a premium hosta, plants must perform superbly in all four zones (4-7). They must also exhibit exemplary garden presence and performance, have a long season of appeal in the landscape, have leaves of good substance, and demonstrate a greater resistance to common garden pests.
