If you like big Hostas, then Blue Angel is a must have for your garden! The giant leaves of Blue Angel can be as large as 16″. When people visit my nursery this hosta catches their eye and all of a sudden it’s a must have for them!
Hosta love shade but some sunlight makes them perform better and maintain their color better. This one I have planted in full sun and it does fine, but late in the summer the leaves do get some wear and tear because of the excess sun. But I don’t have a lot of shade, in time of the trees in this bed will create a bit of shade for this beauty.
I’ve mentioned this before but if you have beds with a lot of open spaces you can sigfificantly control weeds in your beds by filling those open spaces with some large Hostas.
In this bed I’ve got Blue Mouse Ears Hosta, Mini Skirt Hosta, Big Daddy Hosta, Guacamole Hosta and Hump Back Whale. Some of those are new to this bed so I’ll get photos and post them later in 2021.
Blue Angel Hosta gets about 36″ tall and at least that wide if not wider.
It is hardy in zones 3 through 8 and the flowers are white.
Questions, comments, mean things to say? Post them below and I will respond. Until then, by any and all means stay inspired!

Mike-Hosta question for you. Over the long term, do you think there is a difference in quality of plant that is taken from a a splitting as opposed to grown from seed?
A hosta grown from seed will not be true to the parent plant and probably won’t contain the characteristics that you deem the most valuable. But with a divided plant, you get an exact clone of the parent plant.
Your blue angel hosta looks like my Elephant Ear Hosta. Are they one and the same? (I also have one Mouse Ear hosta b/c it’s SO cute!)
No they are not, but probably similar. It’s amazing how many different hostas there are, and all so different.
