InfoBranched flower scape.
Hosta 'Branching Out' is our latest breakthrough from our breeding program...a hosta with consistently well-branched flower spikes with attractive pale lavender flowers, making a truly superb floral show. Hosta 'Branching Out' forms a 1' tall x 30" wide clump of glossy green ruffled leaves, topped in August (NC) with 30" tall, sturdy flower scapes that are reliably branched 4 ways. Hosta 'Branching Out' is a complex cross involving Hostas 'Korean Snow', 'Maekawa', 'Elvis Lives', and 'Pewterware'.
