Hosta 'Chris' Pinky Present'
[M] Sometimes it's a hosta's character that jumps out at you, not bright colors and flashy variegation. Such is the case with 'Chris' Pinky Present', a 'Christmas Tree Gala' seedling from Christina Brinkmann. Round, gray-green leaves are gently cupped, and develop intense texture and corrugation with age. The foliage has good substance and is held on sturdy petioles brushed with purple. Hosta 'Chris' Pinky Present' brings a gift to the summer garden when it puts up strong purple-pink scapes of lavender flowers.
