guess for my money, the five bluest hostas available in the trade would be in no
particular order --- 'Blue Ice', 'Winfield Blue', 'Fulda', 'Deep Blue Sea', and
'Hadspen Blue'. Each of these is different in appearance, so all five are worthy
additions to any garden. I found a 'Hadspen Blue' mixed in with the 'Halcyon's
at a nursery once and was surprised at how much bluer it was than 'Halcyon'. If
you want a big blue one, Walden West sells a plant under the name 'Willy Nilly'
which isn't really 'Willy Nilly'. This plant is probably the bluest big
sieboldiana-type there is out there for sale. I don't know what that plant
really is, but I'd definitely recommend it for the low asking price.
I think the future
will bring bluer hostas than we used to have, and Bev Stegeman's 'Skylight'
looks like a good example of this. Looks really good Bev. Could you tell us the
parentage of it?
