Hosta 'Bohemia British Racing Green'

Originated by Vladimir Mirka of the Czech Republic, this cultivar is a large size, dark green hosta with leaves that are moderately corrugated and come to a point.

According to Wikipedia, "British racing green, or BRG, is a colour similar to Brunswick green, hunter green, forest green or moss green (RAL 6005). It takes its name from the green international motor racing colour of the United Kingdom. This originated with the 1903 Gordon Bennett Cup, held in Ireland (then still part of the UK), as motor-racing on public roads was illegal in Great Britain. As a mark of respect, the British cars were painted shamrock green.
