Hosta 'Bottom Line'

This tissue culture sport of H. 'Sum and Substance' was registered by Jim Anderson of Winterberry Farms in Georgia in 2003. Similar to its mother plant, it grows into a large size hosta about 26 inches in height with a spread of 67 inches. Lavender flowers on 4 foot tall scapes bloom in late July.



An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.

H. 'Bottom Line', H. 'Sum of All' and H. 'Titanic'.
