Hosta 'Blue Angel'

Plantain Lily

'Blue Angel' Hosta is a wonderful selection with gigantic, heart-shaped, blue-grey leaves that are of heavy substance and are very slug resistant. Leaves are held horizontally with tips gently arching dowward. Densely clustered pale lavender to white flowers appear in mid-summer above the foliage and are long-lasting. This is one of the largest of the blue-leaved hostas. 

Plantain Lily Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Most hostas prefer semi-shade, especially in the hot afternoon. 'Blue Angel' is more resistant to slugs than other varieties.
