Hosta 'Holly's Honey'

This is a seedling of the species, H. ventricosa, that was originated by Gladys Holly of Wisconsin and registered on her behalf by The American Hosta Society in 1986. It forms a large size (23 inches high by 41 inches wide) mound that has shiny, dark green leaves typical of those with H. ventricosa in their background. The flowers are bell-shaped, purple and appear in mid-summer followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...found this to be a triploid which usually indicates a low level of fertility. It, however, was a great source of seedlings for Herb Benedict and other hybridizers when selfed."
