InfoHosta 'Dixie Cups' is a 2010 PDN introduction and one of my personal favorites.
Our 1997 cross of H. 'Korean Snow' x H. 'Abiqua Drinking Gourd' forms a 15" tall x 2' wide clump of large, upright, shiny glaucous corrugated leaves.
The clump is topped with 28" stalks of tightly stacked purple flowers in September.
This selection has not been tissue cultured.
