Hosta ‘Aquamarine’
Common Name: Plantain Lily Family: Liliaceae (The Lily Family)

‘Aquamarine’ represents an exciting next step in the work to breed purple and red into Hosta foliage. Super thick, aqua-blue leaves have a red purple spot above the petiole (leaf stem) where the leaf and petiole meet, plus dark petioles. The large, deeply veined leaves are also tinged purple in spring. Oh my! Lavender purple flowers in summer. Good slug resistance.
