Blue Ivory is a spectacular sport of the popular all-blue Hosta Halcyon. It was found by Meyer, who introduced it in 2007. It has spear-shaped leaves of good substance that are a rich blue in color and banded with a wide border of creamy white. It is a relatively slow grower, which is probably due to the amount of white. I have read that it enjoys a little extra water. Flower stems on this one aren't particularly attractive. Slug resistant. A slow grower but a small plant. It's a nice addition to the garden.
