Hosta 'Chiemsee Crushed Substance'

Originated by Volker Eschenbach of Planwerk  Staudengärtnerei in Germany, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Sum and Substance'. It forms a giant size (36 inches high by 70 inches wide) clump with chartreuse colored leaves that have an unstable darker green streaked variegation. The leaves are moderately corrugated, have deeply lobed margins, are cupped both up and down and have a long, distinct tip. It has thick substance which  makes it resistant to slug damage.  From late July into August, it produces large pale lavender flowers on four foot tall scapes.
