Hosta 'Scallion Pancakes'
 

Originated by Alttara Scheer of Connecticut, this fast growing, non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a medium size, very upright hosta with medium green, lightly cupped leaves. The long petioles are reddish in color. It bears dark purple flowers in August.

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "H. 'Scallion Pancakes' is a small plant with a large presence, it stands out from the crowd with a distinct architectural form. Not the typical shape of a small plant, it holds each flat oval leaf straight up and out from the red petioles, showing soft white backs. Good substance, fast growth, pretty dark purple flared bell-shaped flowers en masse starting in mid August, nicely in scale with the foliage. Highly fertile with many stout purple pods. Available from Naylor Creek Nursery."
