Blazing Saddles

Hosta "Blazing Saddles" review

(syn: Hosta 91-116) This new introduction is our 1990 cross derived from using the popular Hosta 'Blue Umbrellas' as a parent. The result is a stunning 4' wide clump of oblong dark green leaves surrounded by an unusually wide creamy white edge. This is undoubtedly one of the most satisfactory hostas that we have grown. Each striking clump (buy one or we'll strike you!) is topped in early summer with 2' tall spikes of medium lavender flowers.
