InfoDo you play cards? The leaf is definitely a spade!
Look at the border and you will find a flat leaf surface, however the medio portion of the leaf is very roguse.
This unusual medium blue-green hosta has extremely heavy puckering throughout its spade-shaped leaves.
This eye-catcher forms a very tight clump in the garden and is a very tough, dog-proof plant.
Lavender flowers in July.
