InfoTwisted leaves.
This is one of our more unique hosta introductions, a complex cross involving H. 'Elvis Lives', H. 'Red Neck Heaven', and a few other friends. Hosta 'Electrocution' makes a 14" tall x 28" wide clump of long, narrow, severely twisted leaves which are medium green with a nice yellow border that ages to white. The clump truly looks like it was letting out a final scream while strapped to an electric chair when the switch was pulled. The peculiar clumps are topped in late June with 18" spikes of light lavender flowers.
