This Smith hosta comes with an interesting story. Another of the Tardiana series (TF2x9), it has good substance and heavily seersuckered leaves that are cupped-rugose. It makes a very nice mound (24 x 14") and has lavender flowers on 16" bloom scapes, but takes several years to mature. It was first named 'Blue Wedgewood' by Alex Summers because of its wedge-shaped leaves, but was mistakenly registered as 'Blue Wedgwood' (which is correct...without that second "e"), referring to its light blue color resembling the famous Jasperware produced by Wedgwood & Sons. To add to the confusion, because of distribution errors some of the plants cultivated under this name are actually 'Blue Dimples', which does not have a wedge-shaped leaf.
