Hosta of the Day - Raspberry Sorbet

Postby redcrx » Nov 09, 2014 8:02 am

Raspberry Sorbet is a cross of rupifraga x 'Shining Tot'. A low growing plant with shiny curly leaves that flowers late in the season. The flowers have a striking dark purple band down the center.

I love this little hosta! So smooth and shiny! So tidily wild! I bought two, one for me and one for trade, but have kept them both (so far). The top one is in more sun.
