Hosta 'Crimson Desire'
[M] An exceptionally colorful sibling seedling to 'Top of the Mornin' from Don Dean. The heart-shaped, satiny, deep green leaves of 'Crimson Desire' set atop strong, deep red petioles in a very upright clump. Each smooth leaf has a generous pool of red at the base. Hosta 'Crimson Desire' is a vigorous grower that shows off its colorful petioles, thanks to the vase-shaped mound that reaches 15" tall and 28" across. In late summer, deep red scapes rise above the plant and bloom with lavender flowers, which result in plump, red seed pods.
