Hosta 'Holly's Honey'

This is a seedling of the species, Hosta ventricosa, that was introduced by G. Holly and registered on her behalf by The American Hosta Society in 1986. It forms a large size (23 inches high) mound that has shiny, dark green leaves typical of those with Hosta ventricosa in their background. The flowers are bell-shaped, purple and appear in mid-summer. This cultivar is part of the "Holly Series" of hostas.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...found this to be a triploid which usually indicates a low level of fertility. It, however, was a great source of seedlings for Herb Benedict and other hybridizers when selfed."
