Hosta 'Beatrice'

This seedling of Hosta sieboldii is a non-registered plant from Frances Williams. It stands 11 inches high and about 25 inches wide. The leaves have a narrow elliptic form and thin substance. Bright purple flowers bloom in late July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...ranks as one of the most significant hostas ever developed. Early hosta hybridizers used it and its seedlings extensively in their breeding efforts to produce thousands of variegated seedlings."
