Thank you for your help in identifying all the Hosta's in our yard. We purchased our home a year ago and found the gardens with many different types of hosta.
This hosta is planted around our oak trees
This hosta is just getting ready to bloom
This is a blue one. It has not bloomed yet this year
1 & 2: Undulata Univitatta
3: probably June
4: no idea
If number 4 is really small , it's probably Blue Mouse Ears.
#4 Doesn't look anything like Blue Mouse Ears to me.

Thank you for your help. Number 4 is not mouse ears .... The biggest leaf is approx 3 1/2" wide
I agree with Eleven.
Middle one is Gold Standard
For the last PIC, were the leaves bluer in the earlier months? If so could the last one be Hadspen blue?
I think with the spade shaped leaves, that #4 could be Blue Cadet. Is it a division of an older plant? Check out the last pic in the Hosta Library. That's how mine has looked as it ages.

When Barb suggested Hadspen Blue I looked at mine. I think HB resembles the shape your leaves more than Blue Cadet...your leaves are wider than those of BC. Take a look for comparison...
Here is a later pic from last year when it was a bit greener. Currently it has not flowered yet. It's raining so I can't see if scapes are present yet. Also, besides a broader leaf, HB has that distinct little leaf tip/point that yours also has.
I'm sure it's Hadspen Blue after looking at your pictures. Thank you so much. As he matures I'm hoping he will look as handsome as yours :)
Och, he's already got a great start and will look even more handsome than mine!! Live long and prosper, Hadspen Blue! :-)
P.S. Thanks for the clue, Barb! Forum = Teamwork
Thanks Jo, I went out at looked at my blue hostas and it was the shape of the leaves and the small size made me think of Hadspen Blue. But it is hard to identify anything you aren't growing yourself - at least for me - and my collection is so small that I even hesitate to guess. But others on the forum has been so helpful to me in identifying or confirming IDs for me that I figure it doesn't hurt to throw out a guess and try and help. Hope we got this one right.
