Hosta 'Brooke'
 

Registered in 1987 by Peter Ruh of Ohio on behalf of the originator, David Stone of Connecticut, this cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It forms a medium to large size mound of leaves with average substance. The pale lavender flowers bloom in July on 40 inch tall scapes.

In The Hosta Journal (1992 Vol. 23 No. 1) there is an article by Peter Ruh about the so-called David Stone Medium hostas which went by a numbering system that started with DSM. This cultivar was called DSM #12 and was described as "Medium, leaves grey-green, heart-shaped, drooping foliage, flowers white clustering at top 2" of scape."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Big Hearted' and H. 'Heartleaf'.


This cultivar was named for Pierre Bennerup's daughter.
