Hosta 'Holar Rising Flame'
[M] Ronny Van Keer's "Holar" series of hybrids has quickly built a devote following in just a few short years, and this is one of Ronny's best, yet! 'Holar Rising Flame' is a cross of 'Tequila Sunrise' x 'Mr Blue' that looks like nothing else out there. Rounded leaves have nicely ruffled margins, are a bit twisted, and come to a fine, sharp tip. The color is an unusual, soft blue-green with a waxy haze in the spring, but the wax quickly melts away as the leaves brighten to yellow. A shocking purple flicker blazes up the wide petioles, halfway up the center vein, and fans out through the side veins in the base of the leaves. HOT! Hosta 'Holar Rising Flame' is sure to set off every fire alarm for miles around!
