Hosta Quill rapidly forms a small to medium sized clump, 10"-12" in height,with a spread of up to 32", at maturity. It forms a mound of wavy, slightly glossy pointed leaves on long petioles. It is a rather special variety. A hybrid of Hosta species pyncophylla and yingerii. Think of it as a bit of a hedgehog Hosta! Having a lot of eyes means it has a lot of flowers, and that is where it really scores. Produces a cloud of lavender purple flowers, on 24" tall scapes. Possibly the greatest mass of flowers on a Hosta once established in the perfect position. This plant is a real star for the aficionado of Hostas, or just the plain keen gardener looking for something a bit different. Not sun tolerant though, or slug resistant, but a well worth Hosta to include in any collection. RHS Award Of Garden Merit.
