Hosta hybrid Blue Cadet / Plantain Lily


    Hosta hybrid Blue Cadet is a beautiful and versatile perennial plant that is highly valued by gardeners for its attractive blue-green foliage. This plant is a hybrid of Hosta montana and Hosta 'Tokudama', resulting in a cultivar with a compact size and an impressive foliage display.

    The leaves of Hosta hybrid Blue Cadet are small to medium-sized, heart-shaped, and have a heavily textured surface. The foliage is a beautiful shade of blue-green, with a thick substance that resists slug damage. The leaves form a dense mound that grows up to 14 inches tall and up to 24 inches wide, making it an excellent choice for edging a border, grouping in a bed, or as a focal point in a container garden.

    In mid-summer, Hosta hybrid Blue Cadet produces tall scapes that rise above the foliage and bear clusters of lavender flowers. The flowers are a lovely accent to the foliage but are not the main attraction of this plant.

    Hosta hybrid Blue Cadet is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow and care for. It prefers partial shade but can tolerate full sun if the soil is consistently moist. It also thrives in moist, well-drained soil, but can tolerate some dryness once established. This plant is also tolerant of a wide range of soil types and pH levels.

    Overall, Hosta hybrid Blue Cadet is an excellent choice for any shade garden, providing a stunning display of blue-green leaves that are sure to impress. Its compact size and ease of cultivation make it a great choice for both novice and experienced gardeners alike.
