This hosta has a rich and important history. First introduced for sale in 1905 in Germany by G. Arends.
Initially described as a cross of ('Fortunei' x H. sieboldiana), however Mark Zilis states that it is "most likely a cross of Hosta sieboldiana with 'Tokudama'". It is the single hosta variety that has allowed us to have the multitude of blue hostas with good substance that we have today.
This hosta is a winner of the prestigious "Popularity Poll" from the American Hosta Society. This variety has been named one of the very favorites of all hostas by the majority of the AHS members in an annual poll. Basically, this plant is "loved by all". An excellent choice for your garden.
