Hosta 'Infatuation'

Plant Type: Hostas

Bob Solberg says that this hosta resembles a bird in flight. It is a very waxy blue H. kikutii in form with rich cranberry colored petioles. The leaf margins gently undulate, effortlessly gliding on a warm summer breeze. It blooms in August with purple flowers on arching scapes and sets seed easily. It is love at first sight.
