Hosta 'Grand Slam'

This seedling of H. longipes latifolia was registered by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan and Hideko Gowen of Minnesota in 1990. It is a medium size (16 inches high) mound that has a heavy bloom on the underside of the leaf and purple/red dots on the leaf petioles. The dark purple flowers are bunched toward the top of the scape and bloom from mid-September into October.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Grow at eye level for best effect. Moderate growth rate...Good pollen parent for leaf substance and shape."
