Or Google "blue hostas". You'll find lots of info. Then, if you want more info, look up each variety using Google or the Hosta Library. Only you can decide how blue you want them to be, how large a mound or leaf, what shape of leaf you want and whether you want them to be wavy or not or whether you want a hosta that is variegated but with a lot of blue in it.
Good luck, but be careful. It can become addictive.
If you just go to the database here and type (hosta blue) all kinds of beauties show up .
I have blue cadet , it multiplies very well, is dark and even looks good in deep shade, but I have seen better blues.
The blue ones I have vary quite a lot. You can see pics by following the link below.
'Baby Bunting' is VERY small but fast growing.
'Blue Cadet' is a bit larger, but still fast growing. I'm making mine into a border in a dark garden where a lot of hostas have failed to thrive.
'Blue Mouse Ears' is a good one, but still small. Thought to be a sport of 'Blue Cadet'. Thicker, rounder leaves.
'Blue Ice' is a slower growing small blue.
'Blue Wedgwood' is larger but mine doesn't grow particularly fast. Nice powdery blue which holds well during the season.
'Bulletproof' is a tough blue hosta - maybe a tetraploid.
'Full Moon' I've found to be really slow growing and I'm planning to give mine to a friend.
'Halcyon' or any of the Tardiana blues are nice plants. My 'Halcyon' is not particularly fast growing, but it holds its colour well.
'Salute' is a nice upright blue.
I don't have it, but 'Pewterware' is a nice blue too.
Those are the solid blues I have. But it's worth considering some that are blue with margins or have a lot of blue in them like 'Frosted Dimples', 'Deja Blu', 'Fragrant Bouguet', 'Touch of Class', or even 'June'.

Yes, the more I hear about Blue Angel the more I like it. I think I have a blue cadet already, got one off the bargain bench at Santa Rosa Gardens. Don't know much about Baby Bunting. Halcyon does good here also.(pic.)
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Mat.6:28-29
My Favorite true Blue is..... Silver Bay!! It is amazingly blue -- best blue i have i think!!! Some pics shows it not so blue but it is bluer that Blue Angel or Blue Mouse Ears or Blue Cadet or Halcyon Blue (I have all those!!)

The whole hosta thing is addictive for sure my dh has lost a lot of lawn to it already but he is doing is with good nature I think
I got him involved and now he looks too so maybe just maybe it will be ok when I say sweetly "honey I need more lawn dug up" he tells me I'm killing him.
Wont start on his gun addiction.
Does anyone know anything about Black Hills Hosta saw one and think it looks pretty good.
Blue Angel is awesome love mine
Happy Hosta gardening
Happy 4th to all
