Hosta 'Carder Blue'

The plant above is labeled Tokudama Carder which is an incorrect name for H. 'Carder Blue'.

This cultivar with H. 'Tokudama' background has been around a long time and it was registered by The American Hosta Society in 1986. It grows into a large size hosta about 18 inches high with a spread of 38 inches. The blue-green foliage is heavily corrugated and has thick substance. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...found by Alex Summers of Delaware in the garden of Ellen Carder...Apparently, the name 'Carder Blue' represents more than one plant."
