Home :: Hosta Plants :: Hosta 'Maraschino Cherry'

Sorry, we are only shipping hostas and daylilies at the moment. The website will be updated for a select number of perennials in mid to late September for shipping the week of 9/23 and we will post a message when the inventory is updated. We can ship hostas and daylilies now, and orders for those are being processed within 7 days.

The nursery will be closing for good on October 12th and this will be our last year in operation.  We have not put anything into production so our fall inventory will be very limited. We are sorry for the disappointment however we thank you for your years of support.

Hosta 'Maraschino Cherry'

(Zilis 1999)

Clump Size: (M) 36" x 16"

Leaf Size: 7" x 3" -- Vein Pairs: 7 - 8

Description: Leaves are moderately wavy, elliptic, dark green and slightly shiny with red petioles and scapes.

Blooms: Medium lavender flowers bloom in July and August on dark purplish-red scapes followed by red seed pods.

Comments: This sport of H. 'Cherry Berry' grows rhizomatiously, meaning that it spreads by underground rhizomes, so make sure the eyes and dormant buds are completely buried about 1 to 2" below the soil. The tall scapes, petioles, and seed pods are all dark purplish-red and attract the most attention to this solid green but excellent growing hosta.

Light: Light sun to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, consistently moist soil.

Related Plants: Cherry Berry

Zones: 2 - 8

    Nice Hosta, but can't take late sun, edges burn. It is among numerous other Hosta, this is the only one that got burnt edges.
