HOSTA OF THE YEAR 2001
Tissue culture sport of Halcyon from Neo Plants out of England,1991. Leaf blade 6"x 4", oval, thick, centre chartreuse turning yellow then ivory if given more sun, irregularly margined blue with streaks jetting toward the midrib, smooth, slightly cupped, petiole chartreuse yellow. Pale lavender flowers in late July. Site in shade for more blue/chartreuse coloration. Still one of the most beautiful hostas of all time, always makes people stop and look when they see it in our garden. You can see in the photo that the leaves at the back of the plant in the shade are blue with a chartreuse centre but the leaves in the front of the plant that are getting more sun have a creamy white centre.
