Product Description

2016 Hosta of the Year!

[S] I have been lusting after this amazing little hosta since I first laid eyes on it at the Midwest Regional Hosta Convention in Davenport, Iowa in 2007! 'Curly Fries' was the talk of the convention, where it won Best of Show in the Seedling and Sport Competition. It also swept the competition into the compost pile the following year in St. Louis at the National Hosta Convention. This chance seedling from the usually sterile 'Pineapple Upsidedown Cake' has exceptionally long, narrow leaves with incredibly ruffled edges. Hosta 'Curly Fries' emerges chartreuse in the spring, but quickly brightens to gold and finally turns creamy yellow by late summer if it is situated in bright light. Superb substance gives this plant unheard of durability among small hostas. Quickly forms a dynamite mound about 6" tall and 16" across. Add to this red scapes of lavender flowers in mid summer and you have a hosta even more fun and irresistible than a order of pipin' hot curly fries!
