This grower is sure of this plant identification.
An unusual large bluish variety, not often seen in the UK, registered in 1978 originally. It has big convex leaves with obvious veining, of a sage blue colour with a slightly satin sheen. The clump can grow to well over 1m wide, and is best in some shade.
Hosta ‘Blue Umbrellas’. A large blue variety with more rounded, convex leaves and clear veining.
All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.
Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.
Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
