Hosta 'And You and I'


Originated by Rob Mortko of Made in the Shades Gardens in Kansas, this non-registered cultivar is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Gentle Giant'. As the name implies, it forms a giant size hosta about 42 inches tall and 68 inches wide. This is an upright growing, vase-shaped plant with blue-green, cupped foliage that has white marginal variegation. The leaves are slightly wavy and moderately puckered. Its lavender flowers are borne in mid-summer just above the foliage and bear fertile seeds.

According to the In the Country Garden and Gift website, "A good plant is even better when it has a special story behind it. Wanting to honor 40 wonderful years together, Rob Mortko named this hosta for his wife, Sheri."

According to Wikipedia, "..."And You and I" is the second track from the album Close to the Edge by the English progressive rock band Yes."
