Hosta 'Barracuda'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. One is registered and, therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Barracuda' while the other is a non-registered plant and needs to be renamed to avoid further confusion.

This cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered by Chick Wasitis of Bridgewood Gardens in 2011. It grows into a medium size hosta about 12 inches high with a spread of around 28 inches. The leaves are lanceolate, heavily rippled, slightly shiny on top and bottom with a tapered base. It has tubular flowers.

Originated by Jocelyne Bastille of Aux Mille Hostas in Canada, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a small size hosta with green foliage that is wavy at the margins. The flowers are spider shape and pale lavender in color.
