Hosta "Lederhosen" review

An extremely rare Benedict found only in a few private collections. Because it is so rare we couldn't find any information on it. Named after the German leather pants, this is the most leather looking leaves I know. Thick elongated leaves have a wavy margin and form a nice mound-shaped plant. Beautiful fragrant lavender flowers in late summer. 'Lederhosen' is German for "Leather Britches" and the tough leather-like substance of the foliage reminded the late Dr. Benedict of the name. Plant this vigorous variety along a path where you may appreciate the fragrance and beauty of the flowers.
