would you choose between Bressingham Blue or Blue Angel? I would like a large blue one, maybe someone besides either of these two? Are there any blues that stay blue all summer or even with some sun?

I do not have it , but saw a couple of Hosta Blueberry Waffles. Very nice blue color well into the season. Do not know how much sun it can handle.

I really like Powder Blue. This picture was taken in July of this year. It's in a shady spot, so it stays blue most of the season.

If it could have a small central variegation on a blue background, you might consider Touch of Class. It has a very heavy substance and stays beautiful longer than most other hostas.

Silver Bay is the bluest of all my blue but it's closer to medium size.
