2016 Hosta of the Year

Curly Fries

Curly Fries is the American Hosta Grower's Association HOSTA OF THE YEAR in 2016.

Known for its narrow, rippled gold 7" long by 1.5" wide rippled blade makes it an impressive smaller hosta for the garden, or container.

It is a seedling of H. 'Pineapple Upsidedown Cake' from hybridizer Bob Solberg of Franklinton, NC. This hosta is great plant for your mini-small selection.

This irresistible miniature to small sized hosta is the perfect accompaniment for bright blue hostas like 'Prairie Sky', especially when planted together in containers or near the front of the border. It forms an arching, wiggly clump of extremely rippled, narrow leaves. Position this hosta where it will receive morning sun, as its chartreuse foliage will be brightest there. Mature plants will develop red speckled petioles. Lavender flowers top the clump in midsummer.
