This is our new introduction and truly unique in the world of hostas. Indeed, this is the worlds first octaploid hosta. In other words, it has 4 times a many sets of chromosomes as a normal hosta. What we have produced is a typical H. 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!
