Hosta 'Blonde Elf'

This sport of H. 'Amy Aden' was introduced (but not originated) by Paul Aden of New York. It was registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2010 as a small size, dense mound of medium gold foliage about 10 inches high by 25 inches wide. The leaves are narrowly ovate, moderately wavy, ovate, dull on top and have thin substance. It bears tubular pale purple flowers in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Though lacking in substance, 'Blonde Elf' makes a tremendous, low ground cover. Its mound habit is very dense and the growth rate is very fast."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Sport of H. 'Fresh'...Increases rapidly...Useful as an edging hosta or at the front of the border. Leaf color holds well into autumn."
