InfoMore upright, twisted growth, similar to 'Wheee!'.
Change in ploidy?
Even as the tight eyes unfurl in early spring, the young leaves create an amazing rosette-like form of tightly rippled ridges, similar to the way Wheee! emerges. As the long, narrow leaves expand they are held upright, never hugging the ground as they do with the parent plant. What results is a twisted mass of slender, yellow leaves of excellent substance with wavy, curled edges of blue-green that randomly streak into the leaf center. Hosta Gravity Rocks defies gravity - and description - as it forms a chaotic clump at least 8" tall and 15" across that blooms in mid summer with lavender flowers. If you want something different, you need Gravity Rocks!
