Hosta 'Abiqua Drinking Gourd'


Hosta of the Year 2014!

A good choice indeed. These deep blue-green, cupped leaves will actually hold water! Slug resistant and the white flowers will attract hummingbirds.

'Abiqua Drinking Gourd' produces huge, heavily-textured, blue-green leaves that twist into a unique display. It boasts white flowers in early summer and good slug resistance. Hostas thrive in all soils from pure clay to boggy ground and they usually get bigger every year. Their dense foliage crowds out most garden weeds. Hostas will bear flowers, usually lavender or white, that grow on tall stalks in early summer. They make a wonderful contrast when planted with small-leaved plants and most certainly add texture to the landscape. Try them in containers: you won't be disappointed!
