Hosta 'Beyond Glory'

H. 'Beyond Glory' is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Old Glory' which has a yellow center and a wider (about 3 inches) dark green margin than the mother plant. It was registered in 2018 by Hans Hansen of Walters Gardens, Inc. in Michigan who also patented the plant. This hosta is a large size plant about 25 inches high by 50 inches wide with slightly cupped leaves. The foliage is nearly round, slightly wavy and slightly corrugated. Its pale purple flowers are borne on scapes 26 to 32 inches tall in July. It occasionally sets viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Goes above and beyond its parent with twice as wide, darker green margins, and thicker leaf substance...lavender exterior & lavender interior sepals. Petals have purple margins, lavender central stripe and a white pattern down the base of each..."
