Descriptions (from various sources):
We love introducing Don Dean's blues and this one will stimulate any hosta collector. Very intense blue-green leaves are held upright and create a low mound (12") with lots of "flare". The pointed leaves arrange themselves in a layered star pattern and are folded and wavy. Blue color is reminiscent of a clear star lit summer night and holds late into the season on both sides of the thick leaves. Lavender flowers in August on well proportioned scapes complete the picture.
