Hosta 'Birchwood Green'

Florence Shaw originated this cultivar as part of her "Birchwood" series and it was registered by The American Hosta Society in 1986. It is a large (24 inches high) mound of heavily corrugated foliage with dense clusters of near white flowers in late June to July.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), it is "...same Hosta sieboldiana origin as 'Birchwood Elegance', probably a sibling."

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) commented that "Eldren Minks once demonstrated the great substance of 'Birchwood Green' by balancing a coffee cup on one of its leaves."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Birchwood Elegance' and H. 'Green Formal'.
