Me, too, so it was great to be left it. It comes up in a black glazed square planter in the front garden, just as the blue anemone blandas are dying off.

Well planned by previous owner :o)
On Spritzhenry's pics she has one that looks like yours called Halcyon :o)

It looks like a blue hosta, David... perhaps Bressingham Blue or Blue Cadet or Blue Boy... I have a blueboy just starting out...they seem a little slower to emerge than the green varieties. just took a close look and if you're up for it...you could divide that clump and have about six plants, maybe?

Thank You, folks! I think that it is definitely a "blue" Hosta, and will check out the varieties you have mentioned. :-))

Oh, Lori, I never thought of this!! I'd be "up for it", as 6 freebies are even better than 1 ! OK - will do at the weekend.:-D)

Lori, I've split the plant (from others pics, I'd favour "Halcyon" as a possible variety). Decided on four divisions. Will keep one and take the others to my other garden. :-))

Very clever of you, Neellan. :-D))

3 Halcyons now bedded down in Haven !
