Hi, Bug Girl,
If you can have only one, why don't you get Blue Shadows? This is SLOWWWWW growing so will be really small for a long, long time. It is varigated but the blue in it is really nice. You might check its looks in the Library. sandra

So far, I think the bluest of mine - and this may be the soil and sun and climatic conditions here- is Lakeside Blue. I have a smaller Buckeye Blue and this is going to be a really beautiful blue, also. Of course, I have many blues and love them all.
Yes, I have heard it is the climate, and a cool climate means they are bluer, because the blue coating won't melt off. I am not sure if this is correct, but someone told me that. I think San Francisco, is ideal for growing blue hostas, but the nurseries only carry Blessingham Blue, (spelling is wrong) and it a large Hosta, that is not blue at all. I don't have room for Blue Angle or Big Daddy, really, Am I Blue is also large, but slow growing so I was hoping to make an exception, in my not buying big Hosta rule. The problem in San Francisco, is rents are high and gardens are small, so I can have as many as I wish, just hoping one will look blue or me, I need a very reliable blue. I may only have space for one more Hosta, unless I take something out. I have very nice yellows, growing. Little pot of sun shines does great.
