Hosta "Elatior" review

=nigrescens 'Elatior'. JN:Seitaka Kuro Giboshi="black hosta with tall stature". A very large shiny, dark green leaf. Huge vase shaped clump. Immense vase-shaped mound of shiny medium green foliage; white flowers. This is a monster in every sense of the word! Not only does the mound develop into a great specimen, but the flower scapes can reach up to 8 feet in height! 'Elatior' is an excellent accent plant which stays in prime condition from spring until late summer. Glossy green leaves form an enormous, dramatic mound. Giant plant, medium green leaves, thick substance, lavendar flowers on tall scapes July and August.
