Hosta 'Blue Lettuce'
[L-VL] This plant has been cruising under the hosta radar for a number of years. An unassuming hybrid of 'Gold Regal' x 'Blue Vision', the few 'Blue Lettuce' that are out there have had time to mature and, wow, what an impressive plant! Round, blue leaves are amazingly thick, gently cupped, and become intensely puckered and corrugated with maturity. With age, Hosta 'Blue Lettuce' can become a bit wild and unruly, forming a stately mound at least 25" tall and 48" across. Stout scapes hold near-white flowers in early-mid summer. Hybridizers and collectors will both be after a heaping serving of these greens!
