H. 'Ghost Spirit'







This is a hosta that has an unusual color and pattern to it's leaves. It has become one of my favorites in the garden. H. 'Ghost Spirit' is a sport of H. 'Valentine Lace' and was registered with the American Hosta Society in 1999. It grows as a mound with blue-green misted leaves with a small margin of the blue-green along the leaf edge. This hosta grows to about 20 inches high and twice that size in width. The leaves are heart-shaped and will have a seasonal color change. In late June or July, it will grow scapes with beautiful lavender flowers that compliment the blue-green misted leaf color. This hosta is easy to find and one that you should enjoy in your garden!


Happy Gardening!

My hosta seeds are up and growing and I should be transplanting and culling very soon. I am very excited about some of my new seedling!!!
