PP19674 (3/2/2009).
Bluest in spring.
Hosta 'Neptune' is the result of a 1999 cross between seedling 97-316 ('Maekawa' x 'Halcyon') and 'Salute'. It forms a medium to large upright clump of wedge-shaped blue-green leaves that are wonderfully rippled and cascade downward. Lavender flowers open during August on arching stems. A stunning specimen plant frequently commented on in the garden.
Progeny:
'Scimitar' = PP x 'Maya Kingsnake'
'Valley's Flirt' seedling
'Valley's Ice Giant' = PP x 'Big John'
