Hosta 'American Halo'

This white edged sport of Hosta sieboldiana 'Northern Halo' was registered by Van Wade in 1999. It forms a large (24 inches high) mound and has heavy substance to its leaves. The near white flowers are borne in June to July. They have a pale lavender stripe on the petals. This cultivar is part of the "American Series" of hostas.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...'American Halo' was selected as an improved form of Hosta sieboldiana 'Northern Halo', a much-maligned cultivar with several divergent clones."

Similar cultivars include Hosta sieboldiana 'Northern Exposure'.
