Hosta 'Alison'

Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio registered this large size (20 inches high by 53 inches wide) hosta with medium gold foliage in 2000. It is a hybrid of H. 'High Noon' × H. 'Noah's Ark'. The foliage his rounded, heavily corrugated and broadly ovate in shape. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late June into July.

Dr. Dick and Jane Ward have named several of their hostas in honor of close relatives. They let me know that, "H. 'Splendid Sarah' is named after our daughter, who is the mother of granddaughters after whom H. 'Kaitlyn' and H. 'Emma are named. H. 'Lauren's Delight' is named after a daughter-in-law, and she is the mother of Alison, of H.' Alison'.  H. 'Magnificent Michelle' is named after a daughter-in-law."
