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 size (24 inches high) mound of heavily corrugated
foliage with dense clusters of near white flowers from late June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), it is "...same
H. 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'.
