John Bond/Paul Aden 1988

A very distinctive hosta; you won’t get this one mixed up with the others. Another sport of sieboldiana ‘Elegans’, it originated in England.

The chartreuse center turns creamy white as the season progresses and the blue green margin streaks toward the center displaying several different shades of green. The leaves are very heavy and puckered which makes it somewhat slug resistant. The color will be better if given a little morning sun.

This eye catcher has 5”x 6” leaves and the clumps are nearly 3 feet across. The white flowers are quite large and are born on 3 foot tall, sturdy scapes in July.

Awards include: Alex J. Summers Distinguished Merit Hosta 1992, AHS President’s Trophy 1994; Benedict Award 1994, and AlaHoSo Award 1997.
