Hosta 'Alligator Alley'
THICK & TEXTURED!
Hosta 'Alligator Alley'. Aptly named, this medium to large sized hosta forms a coarsely textured mound of leathery, puckered, heart-shaped to round leaves of good substance. It is a wide-margined sport of the long-popular 'Dick Ward', which is named for one of the most accomplished Hosta breeders in the US. Its leaves display wide, blue-green margins with chartreuse centers that become yellow in summer. Near-white flowers appear atop chartreuse scapes in early summer. 'Alligator Alley' has quickly become one of our very favorite hostas of all time. (Walter's Gardens 2012)
