Also known as “false” hosta, it is not a hosta at all but shares many of the beautiful characteristics of a true hosta like a low-growing rosette of oblong leaves that arise directly from underground bulbs. This is welcome news for local in India gardeners who find our high heat and humidity often kill true hostas.
What draws most plant parents to the African hosta is its unique, spotted foliage. The leaves are oblong in shape and fleshy. Most noticeably, the leaves are green with spots that may be darker green or even dark purple. Spotted foliage is not typical, so these plants add a bit of flair and visual interest to the garden
