Hosta 'Redneck Mardi Gras'

Registered by Mary Jo Duncan of Minnesota in 2016, this fast growing, rhizomatous cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It becomes a small size hosta about 10 inches high by 24 inches wide with yellow foliage. The leaves are lanceolate, wavy, slightly folded and dull on top with petioles that have red speckles. Tubular, downward hanging flowers with stripes bloom from mid-August into September on scapes about 24 inches tall.

The registration materials state: "Grows well in poor soils, rhizomatous. Bright yellow leaves on red-speckled petioles with deep purple flowers; colors of Mardi speckles on the petioles become more intense as season progresses."
