Product Description

One of the reddest hostas on the market, First Blush offers a highly desirable brick red shade on the margin and blushing from the base of each leaf. The leaves feature that rosy blush when they emerge, and the color holds until the highest heats of summer—in northern gardens, the red will hold all season. The leaves join the stalk with bright red petioles that extend into the leaf blade. Purple flowers appear in summer to add to the colorful show. A relatively low-growing Hosta, First Blush draws the eye to the front of any Hosta bed, and delivers lots of multi-hued drama. Hosta 'First Blush'
