Hosta 'Vampire'


Originated by Dr. Doug Beilstein of Ohio and registered by Robert Hatt of Massachusetts in 2022, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Pitch Black' × H. 'Bulletproof'. It is a large size plant about 19 inches high by 40 inches wide with very dark green foliage. The broadly ovate leaves are slightly cupped "both ways" and have apiculate tips. Medium lavender flowers with medium purple centers and white margins bloom from mid-July into August on scapes around 20 inches tall. Seed viability was unknown at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "Tough looking hosta with dark green (almost black) leaves held proudly on long sturdy petioles.  Appears darker than its pod parent."
