Hosta 'Jolly Green Dwarf' is a Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a truly unique hosta. We're pretty sure this may be the worlds' first octaploid hosta. In other words, it has two times a many sets of chromosomes as a normally tetraploid Hosta ventricosa. What we have produced is a typical Hosta ventricosa with its dark green leaves, but with an incredible leaf thickness, and an overall plant that is much shorter and compact than the species. Even the bloom scape is short and remarkably thick...still adorned with large dark purple bells in August!
