Hosta 'Andrew Jackson'

An upright growing cultivar of unidentified parentage, this cultivar was originated by Hajime Sugita of Japan and registered by Peter and Jean Ruh of Ohio in 2001. It becomes a giant size plant about 30 inches high by 53 inches wide with intensive blue-green foliage with prominent white lines on the veins. The leaves are heavily rippled, moderately corrugated, moderately wavy, twisted and dull on top. Near white flowers with a lavender tint bloom from mid-June into July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Prominent white lines overlay the veins."

Andrew Jackson was the seventh president of the U.S. from 1829-1837.
