From Holland hosta collector, Marco Fransen comes an amazing tetraploid (quadrupled chromosomes) sport of the well-known Hosta 'Orange Marmalade'. Hosta 'Forbidden Fruit' is a much better grower than its parent with thick blue leaves, highlighted by a very bright central pattern that emerges gold and ages to a parchment white. Expect a mature clump to reach 18" tall x 30" wide...truly stunning!
