Blue Cadet Hosta

Blue Cadet Hosta


One of the two best blue's in the variety trial, 'Blue Cadet' is on the other end of the scale in terms of size from 'Blue Angel'. It makes a very attractive, low-growing rosette of blue-grey leaves that reach about 1 foot across. What makes this hosta so special is that it holds up extremely well right up to first frost! It's light purple flowers are another nice asset.
