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.
