Paul Hofer/Pete Ruh 1987
Paul’s Glory is a mutation from H. ‘Perry’s True Blue’; from the sieboldiana line.
The large brilliant gold centered, heart shaped leaves have a ½” blue margin and are nicely puckered when mature. The centers turn white as the season progresses. The 7” x 5” leaves have 8 veins and the heavy substance helps them stand up to slugs.
Paul’s Glory holds its lovely variegated color all season although the colors do seem to change with the seasons and also depending on what light you have it in. So much so that at times it can look like 2 different hostas.
The lavender flowers, starting in June, also seem to change and can sometimes be near white. A Mature clump can be 2.5 feet by 1.5 tall with 2 foot scapes.
Give this one a prominent spot so it can grab attention. It will tolerate a little morning sun.
