Hosta 'Red October'
Common Name: Plantain Lily Family: Liliaceae (The Lily Family)
| Zoom In Photo:
This red stemmed hosta is said to be one of the best. The leaves are green on top but silvery-white beneath (which looks fabulous with the red stems!). In spring this cultivar is stunning as it emerges with a bit of red seeping into the leaf bases. In summer, the lavender flowers are held on red stems. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
