Patented as 'El Nino'.
Sport of H. 'Halcyon' from Holland: very blue leaves surrounded by a bright white
border. Topped with lilac flowers early in the summer.
This highly sought after new introduction is an amazing sport of the popular blue Hosta 'Halcyon', but with a wide white border added for extra effect. Each 3' wide clump is truly scrumptious! In midsummer, the clumps are topped with 2' spikes of blue-lavender flowers.
