Hosta Fortunei Hyacinthina

Hosta Fortunei Hyacinthina

‘Fortunei Hyacinthina’; sometimes just called ‘Hyacinthina’ is a hosta that has produced more sports than any other. It has been around awhile so is also one of the most used hostas of all time in its own right. Fortuni was changed from a species to a cultivar when it was discovered that many of the plants that were in the fortune species were unrelated. It is very dark green to a little blue, slightly glaucous and silver grey underneath. It is fertile and holds lavender flowers on 30” scapes. This hosta quickly forms a mound that gets 1 1/2’ tall and 2-3 feet wide. The leaves are about 9 by 7”.
