Hosta 'Second Wind'

John Kulpa of Michigan registered this sport of H. 'Whirlwind' in 1991. It forms a medium size (18 inches high) mound that has shiny dark green leaves and bears lavender flowers from late July into August.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), it is "...one of the best dark green hostas; greatly underrated."

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) says, "Consider using it as a foil to 'Whirlwind' and its many variegated sports."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Among the best of the hostas with dark green leaves. Easily exceeds its registered dimensions."
