Hosta ‘Rubies and Ruffles’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.700.610

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This selection features heavily rippled, green leaves with creamy-white, ruffled margins. Lightly corrugated as it matures. Pale purple flowers appear in late summer to early fall on tall, red scapes. Suitable for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Medium-sized. Bred by Randall Goodwin. CPBRAF.
