(Mature Size: 30"T x 72"W)
Hosta 'Allegan Emperor' forms a huge vase-shaped mound that changes color from grey-green in spring to a shiny dark green by July.
Leaves emerge with lots of wax making them look like they are covered with dust.
The wax fades very quickly and the leaves become a shiny green color.
Leaves are very wrinkled and folded giving the clump a lazy appearance.
Forms a giant mound of elegant foliage.
This hosta has very thick substance for great slug resistance.
Has the ability to reach the listed size but only in a good soil and exposure location.
Most growers may see a clump 24"T x 50"W.
Clusters of lavender flowers bloom in July on 48-inch scapes.
Why Should I Grow It? Very large mound of smokey blue-grey foliage with some nice undulations.
