Hosta 'Chiemsee Glimmer'

Originated by Volker Eschenbach of Planwerk Staudengärtnerei nursery in Germany, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. ‘Halcyon'. This medium size hosta has blue-green foliage with a greenish tissue that extends from the base of the leaf up into some of the leaf veins. The foliage has smooth texture, slight waviness and thick substance. Pale bluish lavender flowers on 28 inch high scapes bloom from late July into August followed by viable seeds.

The largest lake in Bavaria is the Chiemsee, which is otherwise known as the "Bavarian Sea".
