[S] Small blue hostas that actually grow well are few and far between. 'Gemstone' fills that void, though. Tony Avent crossed the vigorous Hosta venusta with the much slower growing 'Dorset Blue' and ended up with this powdery blue plant that quickly forms a dense mound up to 8" tall and 20" across. The pointed, smooth leaves cup gently and have lightly wavy edges. Hosta 'Gemstone' blooms in mid summer with short scapes of lavender flowers. A gem, indeed!
