Hosta 'Birchwood Parky's Blue'

This cultivar with H. 'Tokudama' in its background was registered in 1986 by The American Hosta Society on behalf of the originator, Florence Shaw of Massachusetts. It grows into a medium size hosta about 12 inches high with a spread of around 33 inches. The blue-green foliage is moderately corrugated, slightly cupped and has thick substance. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...certainly will exceed my listed dimensions under good growing conditions."

Florence's husband's name was Parkman Shaw. That is the origin of the term "Parky" in some of the names of her hostas.
