Hosta Hacksaw, Thunderbolt

Hosta Hacksaw, Thunderbolt

Hacksaw is a miniature hosta that grows quickly and has long, thin, tapered leaves that are appear serrated, due to the very rippled edges. I must get a better photo next year as the plant is much wavier than shown here. The leaves are about 6 inches long and less than an inch wide. It’s so unusual that it really does not even look like a hosta. The lavender flowers appear very late in the season but it will set seed if the season is long enough. The plant can form patches up to 2 feet wide given time, but it gets no taller than 8 inches. The Parentage is ‘Atom Smasher’ x ‘Stiletto’. Hacksaw is the winner of the William and Eleanor Lachman Award.  This plant is fairly sun tolerant. The light green leaves will just be lighter in more sun.
