Cross Stitch

Hosta "Cross Stitch" review

Cross stitch on veins. Large all green widely spaced veined plants. Glossy on back, cupped, slightly rippled. What makes the plant unique are the evenly spaced pronounced cross stitches along each vein. Lavendar purple flowers in mid July. A winner in our garden. This rare hosta, was registered in 1992, but has not been on the market. A big, rapid grower, the leaves have unique "stitches" in the veins. Beautiful, semi-glossy green leaves, form a flattened mound. This plant gets constant notice in our garden.
