Hosta 'Bri Bear'

This fast growing cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered by Stuart Asch of Michigan in 2009. It is a miniature size plant only 5 inches high with a spread of 20 inches with dark green foliage. The leaves are rippled, slightly cupped, slightly folded, moderately wavy, lanceolate and slightly shiny on top. Purple flowers in abundance are produced from mid-July into August followed by burgundy colored seed pods.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "While the wavy, clear green foliage of 'Bri Bear' forms an attractive, dense mound, its most striking feature is a tremendous show of purple flowers in August. This would make a great edging plant or low ground cover."

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "Bri Bear has wavy green leaves forming a dense mound. Most attractive feature is the tremendous show of purple flowers in late July through mid August. Would make a great edging plant. I named this after my son. "
