Hosta 'Doctor Fu Manchu'

This cultivar is the result of a cross of two species, H. longipes x H. pycnophylla by Hajime Sugita in Japan. It was registered with The American Hosta Society by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1998.

It forms a medium size hosta about 16 inches high with a 36 inch spread. The foliage is moderately rippled with purple-red petioles. Funnel shaped medium purple flowers bloom late, in September. The petals have reflexed (i.e. bending backwards) tips.
