Hosta 'Hacksaw' (R. Livingston NR)

What a great name for a mad slasher flick...as well as a cool hosta. This vigorous hosta from Ron Livingston's breeding program makes a 9" tall x 28" wide clump of narrow rippled light green leaves with unusually serrate leaf margins. We have found the leaf serrations become most exaggerated as the clump ages and with good morning/part-day sun exposure. The clumps are topped by 20" spikes of purple flowers in September.

This 18" tall x 3' wide clump is composed of thick, rubbery, ruffled, blue-green leaves which reminded Herb of leather britches (lederhosen).

Hosta 'Mishima Fukurin' (Japan NR)

Hosta 'Mishima Fukurin' (Japan NR)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 3-8 12" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! This small hosta hybrid from Japan has long been one of our favorites, but it is rarely grown; probably because of its unpronounceable name. For inquiring minds, mishima means "three islands" and is a location in Japan, and fukurin means "margined." Hosta 'Mishima Fukurin' resembles a dwarf Hosta 'Regal Splendor'. The upright petioles support the outfacing green leaves, each bordered with a nice yellow edge. In midsummer, the 1' tall x 2' wide clumps are topped with 2' tall spikes of dark purple flowers. Hosta 'Mishima Fukurin' is a good grower that multiplies well...we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Pot size: 3 qt. (2.83 L) #02761
