Uncle John

Hosta "Uncle John" review

This is the second of my blues It is named after my uncle As a child he was the largest man I knew He could terrify me just by making a face in my direction The thing I remember most about him were his long legs This hosta has some of the longest petioles to leaf size I have seen It is a cross between 'Blue Splendor' and 'Halcyon' The blue color is quite intense The flower color is nearly white with just a lavender haze It is fertile both ways
