Special Attributes

We've grown and planted a lot of blue Hosta varieties in our north-central Georgia gardens over the years and 'Halcyon' has been one of if not the best all-time performers and long-lived varieties. It forms compact mounds of highly attractive, slug-resistant, blue leaves topped with pretty lilac-lavender flowers in summer that you and your hummingbirds will love. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a dense mound 18 to 24 inches tall and up to 3 feet wide with outstanding color and texture, Halcyon Blue is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, massed as a groundcover (deciduous) or as a border along walkways and paths to light up fully to partially shaded gardens and landscape borders. Halcyon Blue has been so reliable and such a strong performer for us that we have no problem at all suggesting it for use in home foundation plantings. Don't think you have any shade? Check the east side of your home. It is perfect under large shade trees, decks, covered porches and any other shady location. Halcyon Blue Hosta can also be grown solitary or mixed with other shade loving perennials in container gardens and is a great choice for mixed hosta, hummingbird, and blue or white theme color gardens. 

Spacing:  24-30" for mass plantings;  48" or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Halcyon Blue Hosta is easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and part shade to full shade. It will practically grow in the dark so is perfect for planting under the dense canopies of large shade trees, under decks or any other shady area. That said, it will tolerate morning and evening sun or all-day filtered sun or dappled shade. Hot afternoon sun can scald the leaves, especially in warmer climates.
