Rubies and Ruffles

Hosta "Rubies and Ruffles" review

The Rubies and Ruffles Hosta is truly a sight to see. The leaves are very rippled, especially around the margins, hence the “ruffle” part of the name. The other half of the name comes from the red petioles and the striking dark purple/red scapes that the lovely flowers sit atop. The leaves are heart shaped and are a brilliant green in color with white margins.
