Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hosta Description

The only ones not interested in this unique hosta are slugs! Showing off an unusual foliage form and a rich, blue-green hue, this remarkable award winner will have the neighbourhood talking. Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hosta is a rare beauty in shadowy landscape sites like shadowed borders, mixed container gardens and seasonal shade beds. It boasts substantial, dark green leaves that form intriguing cups of nearly 3" deep, and fend off slugs with little effort. The 18" tall, mounded plants are neat and add amazing colour to midsummer landscapes with 22" scapes emerge to bear lavender, bell-shaped blooms.
