Hosta 'American Angel'

This sport of H. 'Guardian Angel' was registered in 2017 by Bob & Barb Schroeder of Illinois on behalf of the originator, Van Wade of Wade and Gatton Nursery (Closed 2019) of Ohio. The clump grows into a large size hosta about 24 inches in height with a spread of around 60 inches. Its leaves are dark blue-green with a greenish white medial (center) variegation. The foliage is moderately wavy, broadly ovate and dull on top. Near-white flowers bloom from June into July on scapes up to 40 inches in height followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...More blue than H. 'Guardian Angel' and holds the bluish-green color all season."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...identical to 'Guardian Angel' except that its variegation (a greenish white center) is evident through most of the growing season (versus turning green in 'Guardian Angel')..."
