Curly Fries

Hosta "Curly Fries" review

Hosta of the Year for 2016 (HOTY). The hosta Curly Fries is one of the most popular miniature varieties on the maket today. Curly Fries is perfect for tucking into small spots or for growing in containers and contrasts nicely with blue varieties. Plants form an arching mound of wiggly narrow gold leaves. As the plants mature the petioles will develop red specks. For the best color locate the plant where it can get a few hours morning sun. Plants produce lavender blooms in midsummer.
