H. Mystic Star

irawon(5a Ottawa)August 9, 2014

I've had hosta Mystic Star since August 2010...so fully 4 years old. I'd recognize it anywhere...blue, smooth, concave leaves of good substance. I love it but the slugs don't, so I love it even more.

Here are some progression pictures so far this year. Sorry I can't post all the pictures at once.

And lastly, August 7, 2014. Does anyone else have it? Some hosta nurseries show it with bumpy leaves. There's only one pic
in the Hosta Library and it shows with smooth leaves.

Thanks for the pictures! I just got one this year from Budd Gardens so don't have any good pictures to share. I'm looking forward to watching this one grow.

Looks like it gets bluer as the season goes, instead of the opposite which is usually true for blues. Nice plant.

Hi Vanessa,

Budd's has it listed at 10" h x 28" w. Mine is now at 10" x 22" in my "hard to grow in " area of my gardens. I know it won't disappoint you. BTW, I've bought a lot of hostas from Budds but this one came from Rideau Woodland Ramble.

Hi Don,

Thanks for taking an interest. Your comments are always appreciated. MS is a hybrid of 'yingerix Dorset Blue'. I'm not up on the species hostas but Dorset Blue is supposed to be a slow grower. MS, on the other hand, is a good grower.
