Hosta 'Road Rage'
 

Registered by Dr. Doug Beilstein of Ohio in 2018, this medium size (15 inches high by 28 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'King of Spades'. The medium green foliage is broadly ovate, slightly cupped, moderately wavy, slightly twisted, deeply folded, heavily corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Deep purple flowers on scapes about 19 inches tall bloom in August. It sets viable seeds but only on the top half of the scape according to the registration.

The registration materials state: "...This plant enjoys a severe amount of puckers and for fun tries to fold and shrivel up. It loves the uncontrolled reaction of passers-by, similar to the reaction of drivers being cut-off in traffic. You either LOVE it or HATE it." 

The In The Country Garden & Gifts website calls 'Road Rage'  "Wild, crazy, ugly, unique, weird, strange, awesome...no matter how you describe it, this is one hosta that you'll either love or hate!"
