We are very excited to finally be able to offer you our first red-leafed hosta, 'First Blush'. We have a limited number of plants available now for $75.00 each.
'First Blush', a small to medium hosta, not only has red petioles that extend into the leaf blade but also a thin red margin around the leaf, similar but much more dramatic than its parent 'Beet Salad'. However, the most exciting thing about 'First Blush' is that in spring the leaf between the veins will start to "blush" red from the tip of the leaf down toward the base. The leaves remain red here until temperatures surpass 92 degrees, usually into June. The color should persist longer in Northern gardens. We do plan to patent this hosta."

Bob says-- I am especially excited about 'Ambrosia', not only a beautiful hosta, but one that is easy to grow, is sun tolerant, and has fragrant flowers. We plan to patent it.
'Leather and Lace' and 'Evening Blush' are two of Don Dean's best seedlings and well worth giving a good look. Doug Beilstein is creating a line of blue ruffled seedlings that are real eye catchers. 'Winter Frost' and 'Rough Rider' are the newest. See them all in the preview.
