Hosta "Foxfire Palm Sunday" review
PPAF (Schulte, NR) Long chartreuse leaves with an irregular light green patterned center. A seedling of an open pollination cross between pod parent Hosta 'Independence Day' and an unknown pollen parent. Unique "palm leaf" variegation pattern within the leaf. Vigorous growth characteristics and intense rubbery leaf texture. Tissue culture has shown the unique features of "Foxfire Palm Sunday' are stable and have reproduced true to type in successive generations. Immature leaves can appear very "crumpled" on juvenile plants. Stunning form. It is a powerful plant that has unmistakable 'presence' in the garden. One of the most talked about hostas we know. Very thick, almost rubbery, long chartreuse leaves have a dark green palm leaf pattern in the center which extends down the petiole. Pale lavender flowers appear in July.
