Hosta 'Bubble Wrap'


Registered by Dr. Doug Beilstein and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2022, this cultivar is a seedling of ["Beilstein Elslager Seedling" × (H. 'Dorothy Benedict' × H. 'Blue Hawaii')] × [(H. 'Wahoo' × unnamed seedling) × H. 'Silver Bay']. (**For clarity sake, the hostas in Red are the background of the unnamed pod parent and the ones in Green are the background of the unnamed pollen parent of this cultivar.)

It is a large size hosta about 18 inches high by 30 inches wide with dark green foliage that has a golden-yellow marginal variegation. The leaves are nearly round, slightly cupped, heavily corrugated and slightly shiny on top. From late July into August, medium lavender flowers bloom on scapes up to 24 inches tall followed by viable seed.

The registration materials state: "Upwardly cupped, highly rugose with wide margins that narrow to no margin at the leaf tips."
