    Hosta Curly Fries is an exciting new small Hosta which features long, narrow, heavily ruffled, and stiffly but gracefully held leaves. The leaves emerge a chartreuse green and age to yellow as the summer progresses. The plant has a spidery look. It is a unique and desirable Hosta. Deep purple scapes are topped with lavender flowers. Great in containers or in the ground. Introduced by Soldberg in 2008, it is a seedling of Pineapple Upside Down Cake X ? I love this one.
