InfoHosta 'Caesar Salad' is one of our favorite hostas from our breeding program. This cross of H. 'Korean Snow', H. 'Maekawa', and H. 'Elvis Lives' resulted in a 15" tall x 32" wide clump of very wavy, glossy green leaves. Not only is the foliage great, but the clumps are topped in late July with fascinating flower buds, followed by attractive stalks of light lavender flowers in early August. H. 'Caesar Salad' weathers brutal summers in great shape...a truly distinctive clump. We have not chosen to tissue culture this introduction.
