One Man's Treasure

Hosta "One Man's Treasure" review

Reddish purple dots on both sides of the petiole. A great introduction that is a hybrid of Hosta longipes f. hypoglauca and has very shiny dark green leaves that are slightly rippled, the outstanding characteristic of this plant are the reddish-purple dots that are evident on the tops and bottoms of the petioles-they jump out at you!. Medium lavender flowers are held on purple scapes and even the seed pods are purple. Hosta longipes f. hypoglauca seedling from Herb Benedict & Bob Solberg known for having the reddest petioles of all hosta cultivars; attractive, late season flowers add to the tremendous value of this slug-resistant plant.
