Academy Blushing Recluse

Hosta "Academy Blushing Recluse" review

Dark green, puckered leaves with a gold margin that varies in width. The margin becomes more gold with more sun. The clump displays numerous flowers circling the scape. Brand new for 2005 from Steve, a wonderful sport of Hosta 'Abiqua Recluse' with large corrugated dark green leaves that are surrounded by a very wide greenish-yellow border. Leaves are somewhat shiny and the border becomes more gold with more sun. This vigorous grower is topped with near white flowers in July and makes a stunning clump.
