Hosta 'Country Rippled Relic' OS
In The Country Exclusive!
[M] This new introduction from Don Dean carries the same admirable qualities a surviving piece of history carries. 'Country Rippled Relic' is a hybrid between 'Party Favor' and an open pollinated seedling of 'Grand Slam'. The Hosta longipes genes from 'Grand Slam' bring season-long lasting power to the table, while 'Party Favor' imparts vigorous growth and more ruffles. Heart-shaped leaves have a smooth surface with deeply impressed veins, tightly rippled margins, and sharply pointed, twisted tips. The spring color is blue-green, that shifts to deep green by mid summer. Hosta 'Country Rippled Relic' easily grows into a dependable mound about 18" tall and 48" across that blooms in mid summer with fertile lavender flowers. These are 2 year old Originator's Stock divisions direct from Don's garden. Very limited number available. Tissue Culture plants will not be available for at least two years.
