'Bridegroom' is a hybrid from 'Holly's Honey' x a 'Holly's Honey' seedling. It was new in my garden spring 2008 and it has triangular green leaves with sides sloping downward while twisted tip curves upward. It's a smallish hosta which blooms profusely, but I never much liked the habit of the mound - it always looked wilted to me, even when I knew it wasn't. Since real-estate is at a premium in my garden, this one was divide in Autumn 2015 and sold off to benefit Ottawa Horticultural Society. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.
