Hosta 'Baby Boomer'

A hybrid of H. 'Sea Prize' × H. 'Chirifu Oba', this cultivar was registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2002. The giant size mound grows to 27 inches in height with a spread of 66 inches. Its medium green leaves are heavily streaked with a creamy white medial (center) variegation. The leaves are deeply lobed at the base, slightly corrugated and wavy with good substance. It bears pale lavender flowers from mid-July into August.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term chirifu as speckled, mottled or overall variegated and the term oba or ooba as large leaf, 'Oba Gibōshi' or H. montana.
