InfoThis fun hosta forms a wriggly, broadly mounding mass of very wavy, blue-green leaves accented with upright folded edges.
Hold on tight for the ride of your life! 'Joy Ride' has wonderful frosty blue leaves of good substance.
Each pointed leaf has a strongly rolled up edge with large, intense ruffles. Some leaves are rolled and ruffled so much that the edges nearly touch, revealing the powdery white underside. Incredible!
