I know you think this is just another green hosta, but wait... this is really COOL... sorry for the 60's lingo! This cross of H. longissima x H. clausa has narrow green leaves and makes a 2' wide clump. In mid summer, the clump is smothered by 18" scapes with 100's of dark purple flowers that never open. This plant is absolutely outstanding when in flower... a vigorous multiplier.. .just the type your neighbors like!
Dark green narrow leaves form an upright clump; purple buds don't open.
Long, narrow green leaves, topped by many unusual purple flowers that elongate but do not open.
An erect plant with dark green, lance-shaped leaves. Looks more like an ornamental grass than a hosta! Purple-striped flowers which never open.
