Hosta 'Curly Fries'
HOSTA OF THE YEAR 2016
Hosta 'Curly Fries' features very wavy, narrow, super thick leaves that give a "spidery" appearance. Bob adds "the agave-looking leaves are stiff as a board and you can see that our award winning ‘Curly Fries’ is the most unique hosta to be introduced in some time". It is recommended that to get a very special effect this new beauty should be grown in half a day of sun where its foliage will fade to near white. To add even further interest the 24" tall scape is deep purple, topped with lavender flowers. (Solberg 2008)
