Hosta 'Purple Heart'

Availability: Out of stock

Fabulous red-purple petioles on medium green leaves!


Glossy, medium green heart-shaped leaves with fantastic reddish-purple leaf bases where they meet the petiole, and coming up into the leaves. Unique short petioles that are so dark maroon they're almost black! Good slug resistance, and a neat compact mounding habit. 15 inches tall. Lavender flowers on dark maroon scapes in August/September.

Great hosta Review by Jen
This hosta looks great next to Carex "Banana Boat" and the Coral Bells "Stainless Steele". Purple Hearts' coloring is a great contrast to those two plants. It is a welcomed addition to an empty spot. I wish I had other empty spots for more of these plants. (Posted on July 24, 2017)
