Hosta 'Etched Glass'

Plant Type: Hostas

A Hans Hansen selected mutation of his earlier introduction, Hosta ‘Stained Glass’. This oddity has extremely thick leaves, most likely due to some excess chromosomes. The result is corrugated patches in the leaf, which gives it a unique three dimensional texture. The glossy green 8″ long x 6″ wide leaves and wide golden edge are still the same, along with the insanely fragrant light lavender flowers on 2′ tall stalks in mid summer. Hosta ‘Etched Glass’ forms a 15″ tall x 32″ wide clump that is sure to be an attention getter in the garden.
