(Mature Size: 12"T x 24"W)
Hosta guru Bob Solberg has been determined to develop a hosta with red in the leaf and he succeeded with this hosta.
'First Blush' not only has green leaves with red petioles that extend into the leaf blade but also a thin red margin around the leaf.
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.
Bob says the leaves remain red in NC until temperatures surpass 92 degrees, usually into June. The color should persist longer in Northern gardens.
Pale purple flowers in late summer.
