HOSTA 'Blue Angel'
Blue Angel Plantain Lily, Hosta, Plantain Lily
This is one beautiful blue hosta! Blue Angel plantain lily is a clump forming, shade tolerant, herbaceous perennial that is primarily grown for its ornamental foliage. In spring, it produces a large clump of heart-shaped, wavy, waxy leaves of slate blue, and in midsummer upright, sturdy stems of trumpet-shaped flowers of white appear. This hosta prefers part sun to part shade and fertile, well drained soil. It is widely used in mixed perennial borders and massed as a large groundcover for shade. Most hosta are highly susceptible to slug damage.
