We don't get excited anymore at every new hosta that comes along, but here is one we feel is truly special. This mutation of H. sieboldiana 'Elegans' from Rick Crowder of NC's Hawksridge Nursery is sure to become an industry standard. From a distance, it closely resembles H. 'Dream Weaver' except the foliage is extremely blue and thick, which indicates probable tetraploidy. The thick blue leaves are highlighted with a creamy central band, producing a stunning, 3' wide clump. In late spring, the clumps are topped with 20" stalks of white flowers. If you have trouble growing H. 'Great Expectations', give H. 'Thunderbolt' a try.
