Hosta of the Day #3 - Tatsumaki

Postby redcrx » Nov 01, 2014 10:34 am

Tatsumaki is a green hosta with long drooping wavy edged leaves. It puts up very late flowers on purple scapes among its dark petioles. The databases suggest it has tardiflora in its background because the flowers are similar - a simple light purple center "swoosh" for color. (I need to update some photos of tardiflora flowers.)

I have been growing this hosta since 2010.

Here it is in 2011
