Hosta 'Sugar Plum'
Hummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

Hosta ‘Sugar Plum’. Bob Solberg says… “This is the one!!!” I am sure he is referring to all that rich purple coloration. The leaf stems are saturated in it, sort of “bleeding” into the base of each leaf. The flower scapes are also purple. Add the white underside, the upright habit and the rippled margins and you have one unique hosta. Further more this plant is very fertile. We are proud to offer plants directly from Bob Solberg. Add this award-winner to your collection and impress the hostafiles who visit your garden. (Solberg 2011)
