Hosta Blue Cadet is a strong and fast growing hosta. This small to medium sized selection is about 12"-16" on height with a spread of 30"-36". It has thick blue-green heart-shaped leaves maturing to green in summer. Electrifying silvery blue foliage is heavily textured and tends to be more resistant to slugs than the softer leaves of average hostas. Pale lavender flowers appear mid summer on compact scapes up to 30" tall. Leaves may turn from blue to a more green colour with shady planting. Slow to bulk up to start with, but fast growing once established. A very neat grower making it a good choice for beginners. Hosta Blue Cadet is both slug rsistant and sun tolerant (if kept moist).
