[S] This is the plant that put hybridizer Ron Livingston on every hosta collector's radar. The unusual cross of 'Ginko Craig' x 'Chartreuse Wiggles' resulted in a gold plant that resembles 'Chartreuse Wiggles' with long, narrow leaves edged in ripples. 'Atom Smasher' has been a more vigorous grower for us than 'Chartreuse Wiggles' and forms an explosive little mound of foliage that stands in every direction. You'll be hard pressed to find a hosta fanatic who does not have this one on their "want" list! Until now, though, only those collectors willing to pay the high price for an originator's stock division have been lucky enough to add Hosta 'Atom Smasher' to their garden. Red blushed scapes hold lavender flowers that develop into red seed pods.
