Hosta 'Apple Court'
 

Sorry, by the description below, this plant is mislabeled. It happens sometimes! Or, perhaps it is buried beneath this larger plant. H. 'Apple Court' is similar to H. 'Royal Tiara' which is shown below, but with a wider white medial variegation.

We will try to get a true picture next summer. Mr. PGC.

This sport of H. 'Geisha' was registered in 1998 by Patricia Scolnik of Breeze Hill Plant Lab in North Carolina. It forms a small size mound with very wavy, curled and twisted foliage.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This plant is actually a sport of 'Ani Machi' which has been marketed as 'Geisha' in the U.S. Its best usage may be as a container plant because of its relatively slow growth rate."

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Very twisted and curled...slow-growing...Difficult but worth the effort. It needs to be planted in dappled shade in a pot where it will get special care and the unusual foliage can be appreciated."

An article in The Hosta Journal, Vol. 40 No. 1 -  2009, stated that this cultivar was "...named for the former home and nursery of British hosta authority Diana Grenfell..."

Similar cultivar is H. 'Royal Tiara', H. 'Medusa' and H. 'Kiwi Spearmint'.
