Hosta of the Day - Red Stilts

Postby redcrx » Aug 23, 2016 9:09 am

Red Stilts is an upright green hosta with a wavy leaf-edge and long red petioles. The flower scapes are dark purple.

I have had this plant for 3 seasons. This is the first time I have caught it in flower and it's at the end of its flower cycle.

Doesn't look like one of Danny's best. The pets on your pic aren't nearly as red as what his Hosta Library pic shows. So is there any garden value to this plant?
