2023 AHGA Hosta of the Year
Part Shade Perennial
Hosta x Neptune (PP19674) is a unique blue hosta that is popular among hosta collectors and makes a very nice specimen in the home garden. In spring, the narrow wedge-shaped leaves are bright glaucous blue, and they hold their color well. As the season progresses, they turn more blue green. The heavily rippled leaves are of good substance, displaying some slug resistance. This hosta has a lovely cascading form that is displayed to best effect when planted on a ledge or in a container. Lavender flowers are produced on arching scapes in late summer to early fall.
