Hosta ‘Blue Cadet’

‘Blue Cadet’ is one of the bluest of the smaller Hosta. A very attractive, low-growing clump of blue-gray leaves that only reaches about 1 foot across. The light violet flowers are another nice asset. This hosta holds up extremely well right up to the first frost! One of the top-rated blues. It is widely used as a ground cover and an edging plant. The plant may be divided every few years or left undisturbed indefinitely.
