This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Strong growing deep powder blue variety from the Bowden stable. Larger than average leaves for a tardiana type, and some specimens I have seen are truly a magnificent colour. Can be a little slow to start with, but soon makes good progress. As always with blues, some shade helps promote good colour.
Hosta ‘Devon Blue’. Deep powder blue variety which will benefit from some shade to keep the blue colour.
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.
