Hosta 'A Passion For Purple'

Registered by Rod Lysne of Northern Grown Perennials in Wisconsin in 2019, this cultivar is a seedling of unidentified parentage. It is a medium size hosta that forms a clump around 20 inches high and about 28 inches wide with green foliage. The petioles on the long, narrow leaves are red speckled and the flower scapes are purple as are the seed pods which are almost black. Deep purple flowers with lighter inner striations bloom from mid-July into August on scapes 24 to 26 inches tall.

The registration materials state: "...Lanceolate green foliage with intense purple flowers held on reddish petioles; near black seed pods."

The originator recommends planting with strong morning sun for best flowering performance and leaf coloration.
