Hosta "Red October" review

The Hosta Red October is one of the most sought after varieties for its unique red stems. Red October has long narrow blue-green leaves borne on red stems called petioles. Plants are small growers only reaching about 10 inches in height. Very popular with our customers and tends to be one of the first varieties to sell out. Lavender flowers in late summer – early fall.
