About This Hosta

We would grow Hosta 'Ventricosa' just for the mass of deep purple flowers produced late in the summer. It was brought from China in 1790 and has been popular in gardens since. The leaves are semi-glossy, a very deep dark green and exhibit good slug resistance . Ventricosa makes a very attractive mound as a specimen or in mass plantings.
