With 'Fused Veins', the contorted leaves and fused veins make it unusual. This is an erect, small hosta (9x8") that was registered in 1983 by Herb Benedict, who gave it its name The leaf is medium green. The petioles often have a reddish tint. The scape is 12" and sometimes produces a branch. The parentage is unknown. There has been some discussion of a similarity between this hosta and tortifrons. It was brought to the U.S. from Japan by Craig as an unnamed plant found in the wild.
