Hosta Kingfisher (Tardiana Group)

For sale by Stafford Lake Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Lovely blue tardiana variety. Has pointed blue leaves with good veining and a slight wave to them. Petioles tinted lavender. Good pot or border variety, similar size and vigour, in my experience, to Hosta Halcyon, and makes an interesting alternative. Our plants are originator stock, directly descended from the original Eric Smith seedling.
