This miniature hosta comes from the late hosta breeder Herb Benedict, who had a predilection for keeping hostas captive in his back yard and making them have sex with each other. Hosta 'Blue Lollipop' is the result of Hosta 'Dorset Blue' being forced to mate with itself six or seven times...we lost count. Hosta 'Blue Lollipop' is a bit slow (the inbreeding), but eventually makes a 4" tall x 1' wide clump of narrow, pointed, powder blue leaves. You'll never look at this hosta the same way again...please rescue one for your garden.
