stupendous plant Review by Zach Gift - wichita, KS
Posted on 2015-04-17 03:23:20

The first reviewer obviously was expecting far too much from a new-plant ... probably expected instantly what the pictures show (that, and a chance to use "underwhelmed", lol). The second reviewer simply is confused; a hosta is NOT a butterfly BUSH. My hostas from MBC always GROW INTO being spectacular specimens. My Blue is now picture-worthy.

Underwhelmed, so far Review by D Shell - Eastonville, CO

It's mid-summer after planting last fall and I have four leaves. Maybe it is just having a hard time establishing itself, but I am glad something came up.

Planted it in the fall... In the spring grew slow but by mid summer to fall...grew really big and it looks beautiful...I highly recommend buying this shrub. The butterfly bush is the perfect name for it cause you see lots of butterflies!!!!

Large and beautiful, blue-green hosta plants are a unique eye-catcher, with their bluish leaves and considerable size for a bush and their lax care needs make them a relatively hassle-free addition to the yard.

The Colossal Blue Hosta is a large and lovely addition to almost any garden with its unique blue-green leaves and pale lavender-white flowers. This colossal shade perennial can grow up to 30 to 36 inches in height, spread out 36 to 48 inches and should be spaced roughly that far apart to give them room to grow. When planting your blue hosta plants, be sure to bury the plant with the top just at or a bit under the ground, digging a hole large enough to encourage healthy root growth. Hostas prefers shade or partially shady locations, so take that into account when planting. Though the colossal blue hosta has a pretty average growth rate, you can look forward to some lovely round and heart shaped leaves of a blue-green color (bluer as the plant reaches maturity). Typically flowering in about mid-summer, blue hosta plants sport white and pale lavender flowers that hang down. Naturally hardy—and slug resistant—the hosta should be pruned to maintain a healthy appearance and the soil should be regularly drained to promote a long lifespan.
