Doubled Up

Hosta "Doubled Up" review

=plantaginea 'Doubled Up'. 'Double Up' (typo in registration). Tetraploid sport of plantaginea. Smaller and more compact than the species. Found in tissue culture stock at Green Hill Farm and tested for ploidy in Holland by Ben Zonneveld, this fully tetraploid form of the species has very glossy and rubbery leaves, makes a more compact clump, and has larger flowers and a unique fragrance. It makes a great pot plant for the deck or patio.
