Hosta 'Paradigm' (Starter TC)



2007 Hosta of the Year! The leaves are chartreuse in the spring (turning gold) with a blue-green margin, good substance and quilting. Formerly known as H. 'Abiqua Paradigm,' this is a sport of 'Abiqua Recluse.' From the Greek word "paradeigma", which means "model, pattern, example." A very beautiful hosta deserving of its high ratings from American Hosta Society members. An excellent specimen plant. Very pale lavender flowers appear on 24" scapes in midsummer.

good texture, pretty color Review by jo
I love this plant. At 6+ years old it has the mature leaves that are very textured and have great substance. This never disappoints. The color combination is really pretty. (Posted on September 3, 2015)
