Hosta 'Darkside'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neither is registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the other would have to be renamed.

This large size (18 inches high by 47 inches wide), H. seiboldiana type plant was originated by Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio. It has blue-green foliage that is heavily corrugated with thick substance. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July followed by many seed pods.


A large size hosta with dark green foliage that is heavily rippled was originated by Handy Hatfield of Ohio.

There is also a cultivar named H. 'Dark Side'.
