Hosta 'Academy Nazgul'
 

Registered by Steve Chamberlain of New York in 2003, this cultivar is a seedling of an F1 seedling of H. 'Ginko Craig'. A medium size hosta, it grows to about 17 inches in height with a spread of around 40 inches. The medium green colored foliage is moderately flat, broadly ovate and has medium green petioles. Medium lavender flowers with stripes bloom from mid-July into August on brownish purple scapes up to 31 inches tall. Later it bears nearly black seed pods.

The NazgŻl, also called Ringwraiths, Ring-wraiths, Black Riders, Dark Riders, the Nine Riders, or simply the Nine, are characters in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth legendarium.
