This cultivar from
Tony Avent of
Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina
is the result of a series of crosses. First, H. 'Swoosh' × the species,
H. longissima. The resulting seedling was then crossed
with H. 'Red Neck
Heaven' and the resulting seeding was finally crossed with
H. 'Elvis Lives'. Whew!
What a family history.
H. 'Deliverance' was registered by Tony in 2005. It grows
into a medium size hosta about 12
inches in height with twisted foliage that is heavily rippled. It
bears lavender flowers in July.
