Hosta 'Elvis Lives'

Tony Avent has a knack for choosing unusual names for his introductions and 'Elvis Lives' is no exception. It is a hybrid of H. 'Peter Pan' and H. 'Green Fountain' that Tony registered in 1995. The plant forms a large (21 inches high) mound blue-green leaves that become dark green by mid-summer. Pale purple flowers open in mid July to early August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Several hybridizers have found it to be a useful breeding plant, either as a pod or a pollen parent."
