HOSTA OF THE YEAR FOR 2016
Pineapple Upsidedown Cake seedling from B. Solberg, 2009. The agave looking, highly ruffled, narrow leaves are very stiff; emerge chartreuse and fade to a near white. Sun tolerant; easily grows in half day sun. It makes a great container plant, or grows very well in the garden. You just have to touch this spidery looking plant. The flower scape is deep purple, topped with lavender flowers. Leaves are very narrow and ruffled when the plant is young. As the plant matures the leaves widen out more as seen in the middle photo.
