This is a large blue hosta with cordate and elongated leaves. 'Crinoline Petticoats' has only an average growth rate. The leaves have a heavy substance and they are rugose. It is very large, and Van Wade says that the leaves develop a metallic glow as they age. The bottom leaves are so heavy, and grow at such an angle, that they are often on the ground. The plant comes from Soules and is sieboldiana x 'Tokudama'.
