Zoom In Photo:

Deviating from the traditional leaf shape in hostas, 'Hacksaw' displays long, tapered, light green leaves that are intensely rippled and lightly serrated on the leaf margins. With its incredibly vigorous growth rate and smaller plant habit, 'Hacksaw' lends itself for use as an edging plant. Masses of lavender flowers top the clump in mid to late summer. Exhibits good sun tolerance resulting in a lighter leaf color.
