This non-registered cultivar
of unidentified parentage was originated by
Clyde Crockett of Indiana. It is a large size plant
about 19 inches high by 40 inches wide with dark green
foliage that has creamy white streaked variegation. The
foliage is slightly corrugated, moderately wavy and
moderately shiny on the bottom.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...somewhat unstable with some leaves sporting to a
white-centered, green-margined configuration.
Jim Schwarz reported to me that 'Biting Rosebud' was named
after a dog."
entry at the Hostasearch website quotes Clyde as saying
this plant was originally named H. 'Rosebud'
Bob Savory also had a plant by that name. So, Clyde
renamed his plant based on a story about being bit by
Patsy Stygall's Shih-tzu dog while he was taking
pictures in Patsy's garden.
