Hosta ‘Regal Splendour’

For sale by Stafford Lake Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A really splendid variety. Hybrid of Hosta nigrescens, and has inherited the upright leaf petioles of this species. Long wavy blue leaves with a good cream border. Decent substance gives good slug resistance in my experience. A little slow to get started, but forms a strong, long lasting clump. Very elegant in a container and tough in the border. Light shade help retain the blueness.
