Hosta 'Beatrice Green'

According to The Genus HOSTA by W. George Schmid (1991), this is a reversion (sport) of the streaked cultivar, H. 'Beatrice'. It is a medium size hosta which stands 11 inches high and about 25 inches wide which was originated by Sandra Bond of Goldbrook Plants in England. The leaves have a narrow elliptic form and thin substance. Bright purple flowers bloom in late July followed by viable seeds.

Since the mother plant is a streaked mutation of the green variety, H. sieboldii forma spathulata, that means: H. 'Beatrice Green' or H. 'Green Beatrice' = H. sieboldii forma spathulata.
