Hosta sieboldiana var. Elegans, also known as the Giant Blue Hosta, is notable for its giant, sculptural leaves of puckered blue/grey foliage which reach up to 20-30cm in length. From July – August, spikes of pale lilac bell shaped flowers are held aloft, and, after flowering, the seed pods split into tiny star shaped segments.  

A wonderful plant for woodland areas, or to contrast with fine textured perennials, such as Dicentra or Tiarella. Keep an eye for snails and slugs who are rather partial to its luscious leaves. Hosta sieboldiana var. Elegans is a recipient of RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence.


Flowers: July - August

  • Any moist, well-drained soil
  • East, North or West aspect
  • Partial shade
  • Sheltered

Hostas naturally die back in autumn and any dead leaves should be removed as snails, slugs and their eggs overwinter in the shelter of the foliage - by removing them you can reduce the issue in the spring.
