Hosta 'Curlew'

This is a second generation Tardiana-type seedling that was registered by the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society on behalf of the originator, Eric Smith in 1988. The large size, 20 inch high mound spreads to a width of 42 inches. The foliage has thick substance, is slightly wavy and broadly ovate. Its pale bluish lavender flowers bloom from mid-August into September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Though not as widely grown as most other Tardianas, 'Curlew' certainly can be considered one of the best for rich foliage color, thick substance, and good flower performance."

A curlew is a long-beaked shore bird.
