I've already admitted in an earlier post this winter that I have been known to buy a hosta just because of it's name. When I found out there was a hosta called 'Metallica' I just had to have it. It could have been the ugliest hosta on this earth, and I still would have "needed" it in my collection. Lucky for me, it's not the the ugliest hosta. By now you probably have guessed another secret about me - I am a metal head at heart. 'Metallica' has dark blue green metallic colored leaves that are slightly wavy. You won't find it in the mosh pit (or me for that matter), but it does "mosh" well with gold colored hostas.
