What is the darkest green Hosta you have in your garden?
The darkest ones I have is Black Hills. Ventricosa, and Lakeside Black Satin. I am trying to do a design and need a circle of dark to surround the decor.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Tracy's Emerald Cup and Lakeside Coal Miner, both medium sized an Coal Miner, a giant (very fast growing).
Potomac Pride, Invincible, Lily Pad, Royal Standard.
Ahhh, if you want something dark and shiny too, take a look at Candy Dish and Lederhosen. And Jaws which has long petioles and the leaf is more on the tip quite different.
Then maybe Celtic Uplands, not a big dude.
Oh, I just found Irish Luck on my deck. It's a beauty!

Hey, Gesila, I got Irish Luck yesterday I think from LOTG. Look forward to it being a deep dark green.
And I'd forgotten about Invincible, Frank. But mine is not yet a significant plant, however the green is headed toward the dark side. It must take some hosta a while to live up to expectation.
My invincible is just green. It's not very dark at all. It's about the same color as U. albomarginata.
The darkest green I've seen (not mine) is a sport of Revolution.
Blackjack. Especially in late summer.
Squire John, great color in that picture. Right now, I think my Fragrant Blue is a deep dark Fragrant GREEN! It looks a lot like that deep green plant.
If I were not afraid of ivy, I'd love to have ivy the color in your photo.
I'd have to say Black Hills. I also have one of those sports of Revolution,that used to be a Revolution,but changed over to all green Leaves. Revolution never did grow very well for me,so I'm keeping the greenie. Phil
I had to leave them at my last house, but Potomac Pride was a shiny leaved dark green strong grower for me.
Thank you all for the suggestions. When I finish I will post a pic. I really appreciate your help.
Walking through my gardens today and noticed how very dark green this small one is ---Emerald Necklace!
