Only one hosta purchase today - PEWTERWARE! One I have been looking for since last year. YAY! And since I saw them in person, I got the one with the most reddish glow...

Looks like Purple Haze to me. went to HL and looked up Pewterware and it says nothing about having purple in it?

Here is a pic of my Pewterware. I don't see any purple in it.

What color of sunshades were you wearing anyway? :)

If you've wanted it for a long time, seeing it in a purple haze when you've loaded up on herbs doesn't count and won't be held against you. :)

Okay - in my defense (besides that I am blonde and a mommy) is that after looking at thousands of hostas, this is the one that I liked the look of most. I was at a local wholesale place where I know the owner and we had been talking about all sorts of plants. AND it seems it was on my list froma few years ago - just had the name wrong.... I had even commented on that in the linked post! Anyway, I like it a lot :-)

Here is a link that might be useful: purple haze link from a few years ago.

Alexa, don't feel bad. I thought it looked like Purple Haze when I first saw your post so I took Pewterware off my list since I already had Purple Haze.... never crossed my mind that it wasn't Pewterware.

Duhhhh, I just made the connection to the purple in the leaf of Purple Haze. Actually not in this thread, but in the HL profile of the PURPLE plant names (looking for HostaLes).
And that's when I saw IT.

I guess its taking spot #4 on next year's list. But if I got it this fall, it would wake up at home next spring, ready to grow......
