Blue Hostas

The blue color in hostas is generated by light reflecting off a waxy substance covering a green leaf. As the season progresses and that waxy coating is degraded by exposure to sun and rain, hostas tend to lose their "blueness." Thus, blue hostas grown in sheltered environments (i.e., less sun exposure) will tend to retain their blue color longer than those exposed to harsher conditions.
