'Purple Heart' - hosta of the day - please add your photos

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 13, 2014 12:52 pm

'Purple Heart' has glossy lime to green leaves spotlighted with red purple in the leaf base. One of the most neat and uniform habits of any Hosta. The short petioles are almost black. Good slug resistance. Lavender flowers late in the season. PPAF PVR

I have had Purple Heart since 2009. I have one in the ground and one in a trough. Here is the one in the trough.
