Hosta 'Blue Elf' is a miniature Plantain Lily with truly blue leaves, which are larger than 'Blue Mouse Ears' and more blue. 12" Stalks of lavender flowers adorn 'Blue Elf' in midsummer. This little Hosta is great for fairy gardens or troughs.
Hosta 'Blue Elf' prefers partial to full shade and moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Hosta will grow in ordinary garden soil and withstand drought, but they are most beautiful when provided consistent moisture. They will tolerate clay soil and can be grown under black walnut trees.
Plantain Lily are classic perennial shade garden plants that will also grow well in containers.
