Hosta 'Purple Verticulated Elf'
[S-M] Perhaps the best of Herb Benedict’s blue hybrids…he called the color “purple-blue”. Hosta 'Purple Verticulated Elf' has pointed, lightly folded, wavy leaves that form a mound about 10” tall and 20” across. Bell-shaped, lavender flowers grow in whorls along the scape and bloom in mid summer. 'Purple Verticulated Elf' is an excellent hybridizing plant and regularly sells for $150+ on auctions.
