This sport of H. 'Northern Mist' was registered by
Wade of Wade and Gatton Nursery of Ohio in 1999. It forms a large size plant about 24 inches high that spreads to about 50
inches wide. The near white flowers form dense clusters of
blooms in mid-June followed by viable seeds.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The strikingly beautiful
white-centered variegation of 'American Masterpiece'makes this
cultivar worth growing despite a fairly slow growth rate."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Although
very slow to increase, shows potential vigor. Makes a superb
border specimen. Needs regular division of the clump to maintain
the most pleasing balance between the leaf blade and margin.
Still very rare...Embroidered, crimped puckering, particularly
on the leaf margin of mature plants. Some misting or speckling
into the center of the leaf blade on young leaves."
