Hosta 'Breakwater'


Registered by Randy Goodwin of Indiana in 2020, this slow growing cultivar is of unidentified parentage (a seedling of an unnamed seedling of H. montana). It is a small to medium size (12 inches high by 30 inches wide) with medium blue-green foliage that has a yellow marginal variegation. The leaves are broadly ovate, slightly cupped, slightly folded, moderately corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Near white, bell-shaped flowers with very pale lavender stripes bloom in June on scapes 15 to 18 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Pointed, heart shaped leaves exhibit strong contrasting spring colors.  The bright yellow margins cut deeply into the center in a flame-like pattern...yellow margins turn white in the summer."
