Hosta 'Blue Cadet'

(Shaw 1974)

Clump Size:  (SM) 20" x 12"

Leaf Size:  5" x 3" -- Vein Pairs:  7 - 9

Description:  Fast growing plant with heart shaped, blue-green leaves and many lavender flowers in midsummer.  Use it as a small specimen to accent variegated plants or use it as a mid-sized border plant.

Blooms:  Lavender flowers bloom on a multitude of scape in midsummer.

Comments:  Hosta 'Blue Cadet' is a classic plant that is worth a second look.  It can be used as a border or just as an accent and forms a very symmetrical mound with attractive flowers.  It also is the parent to the incredibly popular Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'. Hosta 'Field Rat' is similar but with a darker shade of purple to its flowers.

Light:  Part shade to full shade. -- Soil:  Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
