Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hosta make the perfect water source for all the garden fairies and gnomes that live in your garden. The deeply cup shaped leaves have twisted and heavily corrugated foliage, that holds water. It is said the breeder of this hosta variety witnessed a dog drinking from the leaves, hence the name drinking gourd.

The ability of the leaves to gather water is not the only unique feature of this shade loving perennial. The blue leaves and mound shaped habit make it a unique addition to your shade and hosta garden.

Named 2014 Hosta of the year, this shade loving perennial is a slower growing variety with good slug resistance. In the correct conditions the leaves can grow up to 11" x 11", that's a lot of water storage!

This is the third of this "Drinking Gourd" hosta I have purchased from Holland Bulbs this summer. I am delighted with how quickly they grow and how aesthetically pleasing they look when established.

Pros:
  • Hardy
Cons:
Ordered these late, but true to Hosta form, they were hardy and popped right up out of the soil. The leaves have a blue green hue to them and are growing quickly. I've put them in a full shade garden and they seem to love it!

The Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hosta seems to be growing pretty well even though it was probably planted at not the best time of year going into the hot summer months. I think it likes the shady spot where it has been placed, although I made need to move it further from the house to accommodate it's expected large size (if all goes according to plan!!).
