Waving the Blue
The Hosta Yankee Blue, Hosta 'Yankee Blue', is a vigorous, fast growing blue colored hosta that will command attention in any garden or landscape!
‘Yankee Blue’ has elongated wedge-shaped leaves with wavy margins that hold their blue color all summer, then later in the season, the color changes to blue-green. Nearly white flowers appear on tall scapes in midsummer.
‘Yankee Blue’ is a hosta that forms a full, symmetrical, wide mound that really brightens up a shady area. Plant this low care plant in an area that receives the right amount of light.
The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration. Too much sun will burn the leaves. 'Yankee Blue' is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plant.
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
'Yankee Blue’ has a very good substance and excellent vigor, especially for a blue! This may become your favorite blue hosta yet!
