Hosta 'Blushing Blue' - Nice blue plant with pointed, wavy foliage of heavy substance. The best part is the lavender flame that burns through the center of each leaf! Similar to 'Purple Haze', but the color is much more concentrated through the center of the leaf. Hosta 'Blushing Blue' holds the color for several weeks. Foliage sets on deep purple petioles & saturated scapes hold light lavender flowers in the fall.
This sport of Hosta 'Summer Breeze' (which was a sport of Hosta 'Summer Music') was discovered by Illinois's Mark Zilis. Hosta 'Summer Lovin' makes a dazzling 22" tall x 50" wide clump of corrugated dark green leaves (darker than its parent) surrounded by a wide golden border. For us, Hosta 'Summer Lovin' has shown exceptional garden vigor in our trials. To the delight of hummingbirds in early summer, the clumps are topped with 30" tall scapes of light lavender flowers...stunning!
