InfoThe variegated sport of H. 'Blue Angel'. A white centered leaf early in the spring grows progressively greener, ending with a medium green center and a blue border. In time this one should be a huge clump of blue foliage and will be topped with white flowers midseason.
A giant clump of gently arching blue foilage that emerges in the spring with a broad white center. Leaf center is viridescent in early summer. Many white flowers in June and July. Good grower. Spectacular plant that may keep variegation in Northern US.
A sport of 'Blue Angel', with the same grace and elegance. The large blue leaves are blue with a lighter center, becoming blue by mid-summer.
Striking sport of 'Blue Angel' developed by the late Rick Thompson; sensational specimen plant in May and June; also useful as a background plant or large ground cover; a must for any nursery, hosta collection or shade garden!!
