HOSTA 'Blue Cadet'
Blue Cadet Plantain Lily, Hosta, Plantain Lily
This is one pretty blue hosta! Blue Cadet plantain lily is a clump forming, shade tolerant, herbaceous perennial that is primarily grown for its ornamental foliage. In spring, it produces a small clump of heart-shaped, waxy leaves of blue-green, and in late summer upright, sturdy stems of trumpet-shaped lavender flowers 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.
