Hosta 'Birchwood Elegance'

This huge H. sieboldiana seedling of dark green, wavy, slightly corrugated foliage was registered by Florence Shaw of Massachusetts as part of her "Birchwood" series in 1986 although it had been in the trade since the 1960's. It bears near white flowers from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...'Birchwood Elegance' is a much-admired plant. Several collectors and nurserymen have indicated to me that this was their favorite hosta. It makes a very large size mound of graceful, green foliage that can be used as a background plant."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Birchwood Green', H. 'Green Formal' and H. 'Green Acres'.
