Hosta Elatior




Product Description

[VL] One of the classic giants that dates back to the 1940's. Often listed as nigrescens 'Elatior', the exact history of this plant is unknown, but there is no documented connection to the species nigrescens. Glossy, green leaves have prominent veining and remain quite smooth, with only light dimpling on mature plants. A leaf of Hosta 'Elatior' can measure 14" long and a mature clump can be 30" tall and 6 feet across. Bloom scapes can tower over 6 feet tall and bloom with fertile, near-white flowers in mid summer. A commanding background specimen!
