Hosta 'Curly Fries'
Rock Garden IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

2016 Hosta of the Year!  One of K&K’s favorite small hosta!

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.
