Hosta of the Day - Blue Beetle

Postby redcrx » Jun 27, 2016 11:22 am

Blue Beetle is a blue-green hosta with purple petioles and some color into the leaf. It is a seedling of Cinnamon Sticks.

Hosta Registry - http://hostaregistrar.org/detail.php?id=610&Variety=Blue%20Beetle
MyHostas Database - http://www.myhostas.be/db/hostas/Blue+Beetle
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/b/bluebeetle.html

I picked-up this plant at an auction at First Look this weekend. It's out of the Alex Malloy collection. It is registered to Alex Malloy as ONIR BUT in Zillis's Hostapedia Mark has some interesting information. Mark notes that Alex got the seedling from Art Wrede.
