Hosta of the Day - 'Indy Parade Lap'

I know that people who read my blog do not like it when I post pictures of hostas they cannot easily find, but this hosta is just too cute not to blog about.  Hosta 'Indy Parade Lap' was a convention hosta in 2007.  Convention hosta means that it was given to those who attended the American Hosta Society convention in a given year.  I attended the one in Indianapolis, and attendees were given either 'Indy Parade Lap', 'Indy Finish Line', or 'Indy Winner Circle'.  'Indy Parade Lap' has long, narrow, twisty green leaves with a a very thin cream colored margin.  It's a very vigorous growing hosta, and has great dark blueish purple flowers in fall.  If you cannot find this hosta, look for hosta 'Stiletto' which is very similar.
