Hosta 'Curly Fries'

Hosta

USDA Hardiness Zone 3-9

This hosta is a main entre rather than a side dish! Very narrow, ruffled, thick and fancy leaves that give this a unique appearance. Foliage emerges yellow and lightens to a glowing ivory. Form and texture are appreciated. Lavender bloom adds additional pizzazz. Well deserving of 2016 Hosta Of The Year award.
