Blue Cadet Hosta is a  shade-loving herbaceous perennial primarily grown for its foliage.  The large heart-shaped basal leaves emerge blue-green before maturing to green in summer, and may turn yellow before going dormant.  Small bell-like rich lavender flowers raise up in terminals from the rootstalk above the mound in mid summer attracting butterflies and pollinators.  Best color in partial sun and moist well-drained soils.  Blue Cadet has good slug resistance.
