Hosta 'Alvatine Taylor'

A sport of H. 'Lady in Waiting', this cultivar was registered by Eldren Minks of Fairway Enterprises in 1990. Its height is 24 inches and forms a large size mound about 48 inches wide. The leaves have thick substance and are slightly corrugated. Its near white flowers appear starting in mid-June followed by viable seeds.

Mark Zilis (2009), states "...makes a good non-burning substitute for 'Frances Williams'."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Winner of the 1998 Alex J. Summers Distinguished Merit Hosta Award...Differs from similar hostas in having a muted, golden-yellow leaf margin, longer leaves, and an ability to withstand sun damage."

The only person we could find with this unusual name was a Mrs Alvatine Taylor Yates of Indianapolis who passed away in 2001 at the age of 93. There are also daylilies named for this person.
