Hosta 'Dragon Wings'

Wyatt Lefever of North Carolina registered this hybrid of H. montana x H. 'Fortunei' in 1996. The large size (24 inches high by 60 inches wide) mound has a semi-upright form. Its ovate shaped leaves are heavily rippled and shiny on top and bottom. Pale lavender flowers bloom from July into August on scapes 54 to 62 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...long, pointed, arching leaves that are pinched at the tip."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...shows many hybrid characteristics, but tends more to its H. montana parent."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to moderate growth rate. Grow as a specimen where the graceful leaves can be seen close up."
