Hosta 'Blue Ivory'

 

Plantain Lily 'Blue Ivory'

Hosta are popular perennials for shady areas. Grown for their architectual qualities and sumptuous foliage topped with lily-like blooms. The flowers appear in mid-summer. Hosta go completely dormant in the autumn, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring. Easily divided in either spring or autumn. 'Blue Ivory' is a sport of the popular Hosta 'Halcyon'. It has blue leaves, highlighted by a wide creamy border that becomes more white as the season progresses.
