Hosta 'Irish Hills'

A sport of H. 'Sum and Substance' this cultivar was registered in 1996 by K. & L. Anderson of Indiana. It has dark green foliage which is what distinguishes it from its mother plant which is chartreuse in color. The leaves are moderately corrugated, have deeply lobed margins, are cupped both up and down and have a long, distinct tip. It has thick substance which  makes it resistant to slug damage.  From late July into August, it produces large pale lavender flowers on four foot tall scapes.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...with heavy fertilization, this plant should become gigantic."
