Hosta Abiqua Drinking Gourd




Product Description

[M-L] 2014 Hosta of the Year An old introduction, but remains one of our best selling blues. Perhaps the most deeply cupped of all hostas, the rounded, blue foliage is strongly corrugated and of excellent substance. Hosta 'Abiqua Drinking Gourd' forms a nice upright, open mound and is a must-have for even the most casual of hosta lovers. Near white, fertile flowers barely rise above the foliage in early summer.

(Walden-West - 1989)

    This is one or my favorite hostas. I love the color and the deep cup. One July the deer sheered it of and I was sure I had lost it. It did not get another crop of leaves...until the next spring! Today I ordered Rhino Hide, another cupped hosta and will be moving Abiqua Drinking Gourd, and more slug resistant hostas to a moist slug infested area, to make a cupped garden. I will be fighting the slugs as well, and these hostas will help make life difficult for them.
