Hosta 'Because of Art'

Registered by Nick Ternes of Wisconsin in 2018, this cultivar which was originated by Chuck Finke of Wisconsin is a seedling of H. yingeri. It is a medium size hosta which forms a mounded clump about 18 inches tall by 42 inches wide with medium to dark green foliage. The leaves are flat, very shiny on top and slightly corrugated. Pale lavender flowers on scapes up to 30 inches tall bloom in September. It sets seeds but their viability had not been determined at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Dark green leaves are long and glossy with white backs. Somewhat H. kikutii-like but larger and glossier with minimal dimples. The name refers to my late, dear friend Arthur Degnitz. ."
