'Breeder's Treasure'

This cultivar was listed on the MyHostas Database and The American Hosta Society websites. Originated by Jan van den Top of the Netherlands, this non-registered cultivar is a tetraploid sport of H. 'Exotic Treasure'.  It is a small size hosta about 10 to 12 inches tall with dark green foliage that has a creamy white streaked variegation. The petioles have red dots and the color moves up into the base of the leaf. Purple flowers bloom from August into September on red scapes.

The mother plant was treated with a chemical to intentionally induce tetraploid mutations. All genetic layers are tetraploid, so hybridizing with this hosta can produce tetraploid seedlings.
