This perfect little ebony green plant is very special to me. It was given to me by my hosta friend, James McBurney aka "Jimmy Mac" thus it's named, H. 'Jimmy Mac Black'. The last name of "Black" is due to the fact that if this hosta is grown in the right conditions it is so dark ebony green it is truly nearly black.
