Hosta 'Blackfoot'

This cultivar, a seedling of H. 'Kabitan', developed in the late 1970's, was registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 1994 on behalf of the originator, Maria Plater-Zyberk of Delaware. It forms a medium size mound about one foot tall and 3 feet wide of elliptic-shaped foliage with reddish petioles. Pale lavender flowers bloom in late July. The foliage starts the season light green and becomes more yellow as the season progresses.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...becomes a very dense mound of gold leaves that are much wider than its known parent, 'Kabitan'."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A colorful hosta with brown petioles, red scapes, and purple flowers that make a great contrast with the intensely yellow leaves."
