Hosta 'Place of Hope'
[M] All hybridizers hope to develop distinct and exciting plants, and if there is anyone who does it consistently, time and again, it's Danny Van Eechaute. 'Place of Hope' is a new introduction from Danny that is a seedling out of 'Smoke Signals' with the same incredible milky-blue color. The color is fantastic, but it is the plant form and leaf shape that put this hosta in a class all its own. Smooth, pointed leaves have big waves along the margins and are dramatically folded lengthwise. Hosta 'Place of Hope' holds its leaves stiffly upright, forming a distinctive, verticle clump that will really stand out in the garden. Hybridizers take note...the flowers are very fertile!
