Hosta 'Twist and Shout'

Dr. Kevin Vaughn of Massachusetts registered this hybrid of H. 'Gold Piece' × (a hybrid of H. 'Golden Waffles' × H. 'Rough Waters'), a sibling of H. 'Aztec Treasure' in 1988. This large size plant grows to about 30 inches high and 6 feet wide with heavily corrugated, cupped foliage with a deeply lobed base. Pale purple flowers bloom from late June.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...aptly named...offers unruly, unsettled foliage in a large, semi-upright mound."

Apologies to the Isley Brothers who released the original of this song one year before the Beatle's version in 1963.

bullet H. 'Spinach Patch'.
