Hosta 'Concord'
 

This cultivar is a seedling of H. sieboldii 'Naugoku' which was registered by Ran Lydell of Cooks Nursery and Eagle Bay Gardens in New York in 2000. The small size hosta grows to about 9 inches in height with a spread of around 30 inches with medium to dark green foliage. Deep purple flowers in clusters bloom from late September into October.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...comes much closer to H. longipes than H. sieboldii... tight clusters of purple flowers (like "Concord grapes") just above the glossy green leaves."

The Hosta Journal, (2006 Vol. 37 No. 2), in an article about flower characteristics stated that this cultivar has "...the blooms are deep purple, and last for most of the month of October..."

A comment on the Hosta Library says that on H. 'Concord' "the blooms are deep purple, and last for most of the month."

This refers to the length of flowering season since each bloom only lasts one day.
