Hosta 'Chris' China Star'
[M] It is always exciting to see new hybridizers break into the hosta world, especially when their debut introduction is as nice as this one from German hybridizer Christina Brinkmann. 'Chris’ China Star' is a seedling from 'China Girl' with pointed, bright yellow, very glossy leaves held on deep red petioles. Leaf edges are wavy and the red shoots right up the center vein like a red-hot shooting star. The foliage turns greener throughout the summer, but Hosta 'Chris' China Star' has a surprise hidden in its deck of cards. About the time the ruby red flower scapes appear in late summer, the leaves begin to blush red. Very cool!
