The only ones not interested in this hosta are slugs!
Showing off an unusual foliage form and a rich, bluegreen 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 8 cm deep, and fend off slugs with little effort. The 45 cm tall, mounded plants are neat and add amazing colour to midsummer landscapes when 55 cm scapes emerge to bear lavender, bell-shaped blooms.
