Hosta 'Amethyst Joy'

Peter Ruh of Ohio registered this cultivar on behalf of the originator, Hajime Sugita of Japan in 2000. It is a hybrid of H. kiyosumiensis x H. pycnophylla which grows into a large size hosta about 19 inches in height with a width of 58 inches. The medium green foliage has deep veins with an elliptic shape and petioles with a lavender-purple coloration. Its leaf bottoms are whitish in color and this cultivar blooms in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...continues to be one of my favorites of the Sugita-Ruh series of hybrids."
