Hosta ‘Halcyon’ (Hosta ‘Halcyon’) is one of the best and most popular hosta cultivars since it retains its blue leaf color longer than most other blue hostas.
This shade-loving perennial has flat, spear-shaped leaves that grow into 14” mounds that shade out any weeds below. Tall racemes of pale blue flowers rise a foot above the foliage in summer. It grows to be a compact medium sized mound, making it perfect for small gardens.
