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!
