Descriptions:
It's not often that a breakthrough hosta comes along, so pardon me if I get excited. This Don Dean hybrid (H. 'Urajiro Hachijo' x H. 'Blue Moon' takes the color blue to a whole new intensity and duration. For us, H. 'Pewterware' has unique intensely waxy blue leaves, whose color holds nearly all summer in the south. The 2' wide clumps are topped in very late summer with 18" scapes of light lavender flowers.
This has to be one of the most unusual blues,aqua perhaps that holds late into the season, on the market. It is a very thick heavily corrugated roundish plant with lots of substance. It's color is not the usual hosta blue, it is a unique blue that draws you to it.
Progeny:
'Branching Out' = "seedling PDN 99-094" x PP
'Southern Blues' = PP x 'Skylight'
