'Nobility' was finally registered in 2000, although it had been on the market for a couple of years. It comes from Walters Gardens and is considered a small hosta. The registration lists the dimensions as 18x9" with an 8-12" scape. The center of the leaf is creamy white with a flat medium blue margin. There is glaucous bloom on both sides of the leaf and the shape is rounded with a broadly ovate base. The flowers are near-white, tubular and have translucent margins. A sport of 'Hadspen Blue' it is the reverse of 'Aristocrat' and reportedly not an "easy" hosta.
