Hosta 'Dixie Chick'

Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina registered this hybrid of H. 'Masquerade' × H. 'Invincible' in 1999. The plant grows into a small size hosta about 9 inches in height by 21 inches in width. Its leaves are dark green with a white marginal variegation. They are moderately wavy and narrowly ovate. It bears purple flowers from mid-August into September but is sterile so does not set seeds.

The Book of Little Hostas (2010) says: "Will grow well in early morning sun. Ideal for the woodland walk and an excellent plant for the trough and raised bed."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Makes a useful edging plant. Contrasts well with larger hostas in a border. Often exceeds its registered dimensions...Green-flecked leaf margins and a leaf tip that can be conspicuously curved."
