Hosta 'Beet Salad'

Bob Solberg registered this cultivar in 2009. It is a hybrid of a Hosta clausa normalis seedling x a sibling of H. 'Strawberry Banana Smoothie'. A small plant, it grows to about a foot in height and 2 feet in width. The key characteristics are the red petioles and flower scapes that bear rich purple flowers in July.

These 2010 photos come from the Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict Hosta Hillside, tours and vendors at the 2010 American Hosta Society National Convention in Minnesota, Wade and Gatton Nursery and Wade Botanical Gardens, Toledo Botanical Garden and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
