Potomac Pride

Hosta "Potomac Pride" review

20" tall. Light Shade. Large shiny green leaves. Spidery yingeri like flowers. This is our 1996 release that was selected as the Convention Plant for the 1995 American Hosta Society convention in Washington DC. This Hosta 'Blue Umbrellas' x Hosta yingeri 'Treasure Island' cross makes a 3' wide clump, sporting large shiny black green leaves and small spidery Hosta yingeri like flowers in early summer... a vigorous grower and one you will recognize from all the others. Large, shiny black green leaves, spidery purple flowers in July. 1995 AHS Convention Plant.
