Hosta 'Bizarre'

Registered by Bob Kuk of Kuk's Forest in Ohio in 1986, this H. sieboldii 'Kabitan' seedling has a thin gold edge to the leaves. It is a medium size (12 inches high) plant with thin substance and the leaves may give a corrugated appearance as they age. Purple flowers bloom in late August to September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This cultivar has a distinctive appearance and I have always been able to easily identify it in gardens without a label. One of its unusual characteristics is having a 'Subcrocea' type leaf with corrugation."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Shade is essential as the leaves will scorch without it...Increases rapidly but is not robust or easy to grow. The very thin leaves have heavy seersuckering. The tall, pale chartreuse scapes contrast effectively with the violet flower buds...Has much larger flowers than its parent."
