Red Sox

Hosta "Red Sox" review

Medium green, shiny, round leaves with red petioles whose color extends onto the leaf. Light lavender flowers on dark red scapes. Blooms mid September. This is one of Roy Herold's famous red-stemmed plants that surprised everyone when 'Cinnamon Sticks' came out. This is the biggest of them, growing over a foot tall and two feet wide. Petiole color, like the others, is a very good red. This plant was offered by Hatfield years ago, but has not been around really since his nursery disappeared. Rare and hard to find.
