Outstanding Qualities

This large blue leaf hosta creates an impact in the summer garden. In spring robust large blue-green leaves emerge and form an impressive mound up to 4 feet wide. As the foliage matures the color tones down slightly as the flowering spikes grow up through the leaves. The trumpet-shaped flowers are white with a hint of lavender and compliment the cool tones of the leaves.

Culture Notes
Hostas prefer a location in light to open shade, although ‘Blue Angel’ will tolerate full sun with adequate moisture. Plant it in a location with rich moist to well-drained soils. Most hostas will tolerate sandy sites as well as clay. During dry weather provide regular watering, especially in sandy soils. Hot locations should be avoided. Flowers can be removed once the blooms have faded and the foliage can be cut to the ground in fall
