Hosta Little Red Rooster has shiny green leaves which are slightly wavy and are held on bright red petioles. The back of the petioles and base of the scapes are bright red and very tall. Forms a vigorous dense mound of attractive shiny green foliage. This hosta is beautiful when in full bloom. Lavender flowers are borne on bright red scapes in summer. Nice rippled green leaves on red petioles. Red scapes with nice flowers. Matures only 6 inches tall and 12 inches wide. Can take lots of sun, more it gets redder petioles will be. Not slug resistant but does benefit form sunshine. Makes a good 'edge of border' plant to show off its red legs.
