Hosta 'Lemon Snap'
Hummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

(Solberg 2018) ([‘Smiley Face’ X ‘Beet Salad] X [‘Peacock Strut’ X ‘Beet Salad’]) Medium, (10″ X 20″) This hosta is the headliner of the next generation of our yellow hostas with bright red petioles. The leaves can be cupped up to really the red as it saturates the midrib sometimes to near the middle of the leaf. The cupping is a new leaf shape for this line of breeding with some puckers thrown in here and there. In mid-summer a very dark purple scape emerges with pretty purple striped flowers in a tight mass. A great breeder, too.
