Hostas come in a wide range of sizes and as you go through our listing you will see a letter in parenthesis after the name which denotes the height of the plant…the ledger below will help to convert this to inches.
[mini/small] (Van Eechaute) A beautiful little sport of H. ‘Blue Cadet’ from Danny Van Eechaute. Round blue-green leaves have a dark yellow center...looks like a miniature H. ‘June’. Great substance and will be topped with lavender flowers midsummer...(limited).
Bam Bam Blue
[L] (Schulz) This is the first introduction for Ed Schulz of Iowa that we are bringing forth and we think it is really an exciting plant...one of the nicest “blues” we have seen. Very blue and very corrugated dinner-sized leaves display some cupping and even a little waviness. Forms an upright clump with great character and holds it color late into the season. White flowers appear in late June.
Band of Gold
[L] (Elslager) Good grower with great substance on large heart-shaped dark green leaves that sport a wide yellow border which later fades to white. Beautiful white flowers appear in midsummer.
[L] (Muntons Microplants) Nice H. sieboldiana ‘Elegans’ sport …beautiful wide white border surrounds a nicely rounded and corrugated blue leaf with great substance. Differs from H. ‘Northern Exposure as it doesn’t get quite as tall and it forms a tighter clump. Does best in filtered light and will to topped with white flowers.
[S] (Sisson) Open pollinated seedling from H. ‘Blue Cadet’...leaves come up in spring a very creamy color mottled with green. The green slowly becomes more prominent but newer flushes of leaves will be lighter and misted. Small clump topped with white flowers in June.
[M] (Goodwin) Heart-shaped blue-green leaves are somewhat shiny and framed with a good yellow border that has a little waviness. Great substance with slight cupping and clump will be topped with lavender flowers midsummer.
[M] (Heemskerk) A new sport from H. ‘Dream Weaver’ with a wide yellow to cream center and a blue green border. The plant looks something like H. ‘Great Expectations’ but the leaf is much thicker and it grows much better. Topped with white flowers.
[S] (Don Dean) Small clump of blue-green leaves framed by a wide yellow-gold border. Great substance and some cupping on slightly corrugated leaves that are topped with lavender flowers midsummer.
[M] (Chrystal) Unique blue from Europe...a cross between H. hypoleuca and H. ‘Halcyon’…beautiful, pointed, chalky blue leaves are large and topped with lavender flowers.
Bedford Rise and Shine
[S] (Chrystal/Bond) Great smaller introduction from Great Britain with thick, shiny green leaves framed by a nice creamy-white border. Proving to be quite vigorous...topped with lavender-purple flowers.
[VL] (Savory) This very large bright green hosta has been around for many years but not found in good supply. Deeply impressed veins create a unique mound. Topped with near-white flowers.
Ben Vernooij PPAF
[M] (Fransen/Vernooij) Very striking and fully tetraploid form of H. ‘First Frost’…unbelievably thick blue leaves have a very wide feathered creamy-yellow border. Named for the brother of Paul Vernooij of Holland who passed from cancer recently and a donation will be made to the Cancer Foundation for each plant sold. Large lavender flowers. ‘Ben Vernooij’ differs from ‘Autumn Frost’ in that the leaves are thicker. Grows a bit slower than the parent but we are offering nice large plants.
[L] (Aden) Chalky-blue leaves are rounded, cupped and puckered... white flowers in late spring.
[L] (Goodenough) This great introduction from Rick Goodenough is “solid as a rock”...extra-large, light Irish-green leaves are rounded (13” x 15”) and form an impressive domed clump. Lots of heavy corrugation creates a “pebbled” look and adds to the interest...the color will lighten a bit as the season progresses and the clump will be topped with near-white flowers.
[S] (Klose) A German Tardiana from Heinz Klose who made the selection from seed he received from Eric Smith...round deep blue leaves have good substance and are topped with lavender flowers.
[L] (Aden) Very large, blue-green leaves form a clump which commands attention...white flowers.
[M] (Carlson) Monty and Julie Carlson bring us an outstanding and beautiful blue that puts on a stunning display. Dense, medium-sized mound of extremely pie-crusted leaves are an intense blue color. The leaf tips twist outward creating the illusion of constant motion. Lavender flowers midsummer.
[L] (Sawyer) Round, heart-shaped blue-green leaves have heavily impressed veins. Lavender flowers.
[M] (Naylor Creek Nursery) Variegated sport of H. ‘Fragrant Blue’…smooth heart-shaped leaves are medium blue-green and framed by a variable yellow border. Topped with near-white flowers. Although the parent is said to be fragrant we do not believe H. ‘Blue Flame’ to be fragrant. Possibly the same as H. ‘Secret Love’.
[L] (Petryszyn) Vigorous blue hosta with an upright habit that can reach 30” tall. Leaves are nicely corrugated, but flat, and hold their color well throughout the season. Topped with pure white flowers.
[mini] (Benedict) Great little hybrid from H. ‘Dorset Blue’...deep blue-green leaves are heart-shaped and have tremendous substance. Topped with pale lavender flowers.
[M] (Silvers) Cupped and rounded green leaves on this all green sport of H. ‘Rainforest Sunrise’.
[S] (Solberg) Impressive form and impressive substance…makes a wonderful little mound of heart-shaped blue leaves with a smooth texture and is topped with pale lavender flowers.
Blue Mouse Ears
[mini/small] (Deckert) Wonderful blue with very thick round leaves that form a tight mound. One of the best hostas and a great blue that will be topped lavender flowers midseason.
[L] (King) One of the early hybrids from H. ‘Empress Wu’...crossed with H. ‘Skylight’ gives a very large blue-green hosta with nice veination. Good substance on a clump topped with pale lavender flowers.
Blueberry Ala Mode
[M/L] (Strandberg) Sport from H. ‘Abiqua Drinking Gourd’ with a variable white border that improves with age. Leaf still cups and the plant shows all the same great characteristics of the parent. Near white flowers.
[M] (Meyer) Good blue color on round leaves of good substance...lots of puckering and the leaves are held on reddish petioles. Very vigorous grower.
[M] (Fransen) All green sport from H. ‘Paradise Island’...beautiful thick leaves are held on red petioles and the red reaches far into the leaf. Good looker and good grower.
[M] (Van den Top) Sport from H. ‘Captain Kirk’ that constantly changes as the season progresses. Leaves emerge green and in about 2 weeks develop a green edge with a shadowy yellow center. Next, the center turns dark green and the border becomes white...then, the center turns white. Finally, the whole leaf becomes white with a green line.
[L](Van Eechaute) Intro with H. ‘Lakeside Roy’ in the background. Greenish-blue foliage is surrounded by a wide and variable creamy-white border that makes a bold statement. Pale lavender flowers show in midsummer.
[mini/small] (Scheer) Named for us “boyz” at Naylor Creek…emerges bright chartreuse with pointy little red leaf tips. As the red fades, the slightly glossy leaves turn bright yellow.
**Bridal Falls PPAF EUPVR
L] (Van den Top) Beautiful sport from H. ’Niagara Falls’ that will make a large clump of dark green leaves with a wide creamy-white border that creates a “feathered” pattern on the leaf. The gentle pie-crusting makes for an elegant hosta that will be topped with lavender flowers. A real eye catcher when mature with good veination.
[S] (Benedict) Interesting small mound of upward twisted and pointed leaves with rippled margins are held on their petioles like no other hosta…a satiny sheen and dark green color add to the plant. Lavender flowers.
[M] (Aden) Beautiful gold leaves with wide blue-green margins…faster growing and more vigorous selection of H. ‘Tokudama Aureonebulosa’. White flowers.
[M] (Livingston) Rounded green leaves are elegantly framed in a very wide yellow border. The irregular border fades to creamy-white by midsummer. Topped with near-white flowers. Great plant with good substance.
[M/L] (Petryszyn) Outstanding yellow-gold leaves are framed by a wide medium green border...good substance and lots of corrugation on a great hosta. Topped with white flowers in midsummer.
