Hosta 'Ruffed Up'

This fast growing cultivar which was registered in 2009 by Monty and Julie Carlson is the result of a cross of H. 'Bottom Line' × an unnamed cultivar. It forms a large size (25 inches high by 55 inches wide) clump with leaves that have ruffled edges. The leaves start the season chartreuse in color and changes to golden yellow later. Its foliage is intensely wavy, broadly ovate and slightly shiny on top with maroon colored petioles. Pale lavender flowers bloom from August into September followed by maroon colored seed pods.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Rugged and easy to grow although slow to increase...The gold and green mottling only appears if exposed to sunlight."

  1. H. 'Generous Heart'
