Hosta 'At the Ritz'

This non-registered hosta of unidentified parentage is from Bill Janssen of Collector's Nursery in Washington. It is a large size hosta about 23 inches high by 45 inches wide with green foliage that has yellow and creamy yellow streaked variegation. The leaves are slightly wavy and moderately corrugated. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...impressed with its attractive, though somewhat unstable variegation."

A cultivar by this name was listed on the Hosta Library.

"In the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants 1995, Article 17.6 dictates that all words should have an initial capital letter, with the following exceptions. Words that follow a hyphen, conjunctions and prepositions, other than those which are the first word in the epithet. Exceptions are also given where linguistic custom dictates otherwise.

The following hosta cultivar epithets should be corrected as follows: ‘At The Ritz’ to ‘At the Ritz’ (IAC List)..."
