'Frosted Dimples' is a medium-sized hosta, a hybrid of H. ‘Blue Dimples’ x H. ‘Silver Frost’. It was new to me spring 2007. Pebbled blue foliage is surrounded by a creamy border. The powder blue colour holds longer than most other hostas. Leaves are lightly folded, lightly wavy, with curved and twisted leaf tips and overlapping variegation. Held up well all season. Please feel to share your photos of this hosta.

That is 'Blue Shadows'. And at the top you see a bit of 'Marilyn Monroe'. You can see both of them in the 2nd photo too.
