Black Hills

Hosta "Black Hills" review

A very dark green with round leaves. Makes a desirable specimen. Black-green leaves, heavily corrugated, another good dark green; lavender flowers. In an informal 'Wish List Poll' in a recent issue of the Hosta Journal, this plant ranked third on the list of most wanted hostas. Only 'Dorothy Benedict' and 'Spilt Milk', both of which are very difficult to find, ranked higher. The leaves are very dark green, cupped, and very heavily puckered. The color and texture make it an outstanding specimen. Currently in very short supply. Lavender flowers. Deep green leaves rounded and cupped. Heavily-textured foliage of black-green is sure to make an impression! Lavender flowers. Large, very dark green leaves, slightly cupped, heavily corrugated. Outstanding specimen hosta. Very deep green leaves. Lavender flowers appear in June.
