Daily Hosta #1 - 'Déjà Blu' - Add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Nov 04, 2011 6:26 am

Name: H. 'Déjà Blu'

Description: blue-green leaves and white line between the yellow margins

Size: Small -(18"w x 8"h)
Origin: sport of H. 'Blue Boy', Walters Gardens
Flowers: Lavender flowers in July
Added to garden: Spring 2007

My plant was divided spring 2011 as it was outgrowing the space I had for it. This was not an easy plant to divide.
It has never shown the white line mentioned above.

Another first year hosta for us. We're having a nearby maple tree cut down, maybe it will get more sun next year and show the white line.

Hi Ann,

It looks like the lower right leaf on your Deja Blu is showing the line. :)

This summer I tried putting one into full sun to see what would happen. The center bleached out from blue to medium green and the line showed up really well. Unfortunately it then fried in the middle by the end of August, so I think you need to find a balance between enough sunlight to help the line show up but not so much to bleach out the rest of the color.

Mine is in dark shade and never develops the line. I did pick up another one and put it in a trough so I can adjust the light it gets.

Chris, I DID notice that after I posted the picture. Maybe I should move this one to the east side of my house where it gets more morning sun. Would have more space to grow too. :D

And here's what a very young one might look like. Planted this one in early September. It had been sitting in the sun for awhile so it's a little buned.

This one recovered everything that I divided from it a year ago.

ViolaAnn,

I thought you might like to see the division of Deja Blu that I got from you last year. Nice size for a first year division and DB is doing well despite root competition. Pic taken May 23. Sorry the picture isn't better but its the only one I took.

That's doing well, Irene.

I must say that I looked at mine today and there are a few leaves that clearly show the "lightening bolt". I wonder if it's a function of maturity.

2014 picture. This one continues to do well for me and I think I may divide it as it's outgrowing its space.

This pic is a lovely blue seedling from 'Déjà Blu'. From 2009; so getting fairly mature.
