Hosta 'Cutting Edge' drew raves from the attendees at the American Hosta Society Convention in Minnesota...even before the bar opened. This unique hybrid (H. 'Salute' x H. pycnophylla) makes a 27" wide clump of pointed glossy blue leaves with a distinctive wavy edge. The architectural clump is topped in summer with a 2'+ tall scape of lavender flowers
