Descriptions:
A medium sized (18" high) mounding plant with green deeply impressed vained spear shaped leaves with a clean creamy yellow turning to white margin. A H.'Dorset Clown'x H. kikutii hybrid.
Long pointed green leaves have deeply impressed veins and are surrounded by a creamy-yellow margin that turns white as the season progresses. A H. kikutii hybrid and will be topped with lavender flowers late in the season.
This new introduction highlights the best work of master hosta breeder Herb Benedict along with a little help from his friends. This cross of Herb's H. 'Dorset Clown' x H. kikutii, combines the best of both parents. Hosta 'Fatal Attraction' retains the long deeply veined leaves and flat growing habit of Hosta kikutii, while adding a nice golden yellow border. In very late summer, the 3' wide clumps are topped with 20" spikes of light lavender flowers.
