This Hosta 'Blue Moon' hybrid from Minnesota's Hans Hansen is a very slow grower with small, cupped, blue leaves, highlighted by creamy white centers. For the first couple of years, the plant shows more white than blue, but this changes with age as the blue edge widens to 1-2". When H. 'Lonesome Dove' matures, it makes a stunning 17" tall x 32" wide clump, topped in late spring with short spikes of light lavender flowers.
