Garnet Prince

Hosta "Garnet Prince" review

Vase shaped plant. Green leaves with red stems. Very attractive. An upright, vase-like clump with dark green leaves and RED STEMS. Dark green leaves, slightly cupped, with a satiny sheen, held upright on incredibly red petioles. An Hosta nigrescens hybrid, this is one of our favorite new hostas. We are using it a lot in our breeding. Medium violet flowers. Bright medium green leaves with beautiful cherry red petioles. Violet flowers. Large, bright medium green leaves with beautiful cherry red petioles, violet flowers July-September. Bright medium green leaf, with beautiful cherry red petioles (much brighter than 'Regal Rhubarb'). Upright habit with violet blooms on 50 inch scapes. A must for the hybridizer working for red petioles.
