Hosta 'Bold Edger'

This large size (20 inches high by 20 inches wide)cultivar was introduced in 1983 by Dr Kevin Vaughn. The lavender flowers sit atop a 30 inch scape and are funnel shaped followed by viable seeds. It is a cross between H. 'Beatrice' x H. sieboldiana 'Frances Williams'.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "Increases rapidly...Clump habit does not live up to the very attractive individual leaves."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Breeder's Edge', H. 'Coquette', H. 'Emily Dickinson', H. 'Goddess of Athena', H. 'Queen Josephine' and H. 'Tambourine'.
