Hosta "Metallica" review
16" tall. Light Shade. A thick clump of dark blue green leaves with a metallic sheen. From the Lachmans, comes this Hosta 'Blue Moon' hybrid that makes a nice 2' wide clump of long dark blue green undulating foliage. Each clump is topped with 2' scapes of violet flowers in late spring. Dark blue-green metallic heart-shaped leaves with lavender flowers. Very dark blue-green leaves with a metallic sheen, lanceolate with wavy edges, wide at the base and sharply pointed. Unusual in both shape and color. From a cross of a 'Beatrice' seedling and 'Blue Moon'. Medium violet flowers.
