Home :: Hosta Plants :: Hosta 'Red October'

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 'Red October'

(Herold NR)

Clump Size: (M) 28" x 14"

Leaf Size: 9" x 4" -- Vein Pairs: 8 - 9

Description: The leaves on this semi-upright hosta are lance-shaped and somewhat wavy, blue-green with a white back and nicely contrasting red stems.

Blooms: Dense lavender flowers bloom on red scapes in late September and into October. The flower scapes often branch and it is possible to have up to 5 independent scapes emerging from a single eye, making it very floriferous.

Comments: The contrast between the blue leaves and red stems is very attractive, however it is best viewed from below to really appreciate it. Plant this specimen in a container or at the edge of a raised bed, or create a mass planting and really enjoy the fall flower display.

Light: Part shade to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.

Zones: 2 - 8
