Hosta 'Sacra'

Originated in Japan, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It was first thought to be a species but Schmid (1991) reduced it to cultivar status. The hosta is of a medium size about 14 inches high by 42 inches wide. Its leaves are broadly ovate, slightly rippled and curly at the tip.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Schmid (1991) state that plants with this label in North America do not exhibit prunosity and cannot be the true 'Sacra'."

Prunosity means that the leaves have a dusty coating or bloom on them.
