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
