PP28,920 (Solberg 2015) This breakthrough in hosta hybridization is Bob Soberg's first red-leaf hosta. The red color extends from the red petioles into the leaf blade but also a thin red margin around the leaf, similar but much more dramatic than its parent 'Beet Salad'. 'First Blush' debuts in spring when the leaf between the veins will start to "blush" red from the tip of the leaf down toward the base. The leaves remain red here until temperatures surpass 92 degrees, usually into June. The color should persist longer in Northern gardens. Photo courtesy of Green Hill Farm
ReviewsDixie Lee DrydenMy order of (3) Plants arrived early and very carefully packaged and in excellent condition. Wow were they free of any possible soil contamination. The plants have done fairly well since planting, probably due to the time of year and HOT weather I planted them in, however they are surviving and I'm sure when settled in, they will thrive. I will purchase from this supplier again! The plants are lovely.Bullet Brown
A True Beauty!Purchased several varieties of hostas...I LOVE the care in packaging...no waste! I have also purchased from many companies....PFG is by far my favorite! the name is perfect and describes this hosta to a 'T'! The 'blush' adds just the right amount of color...a beautiful focal point in a pot.
