Hosta 'Chiemsee Weihnachtssport'

Originated by Volker Eschenbach of Planwerk Staudengärtnerei nursery in Germany, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. ‘Night before Christmas'. It is a medium size hosta with short petioles and is smaller than the mother plant. The leaves are dark green with a very narrow white medial (center) variegation. They are ovate shaped, slightly wavy and smooth textured. Pale lavender flowers are produced on 42 inch tall scapes from mid-July into August. It is sterile and, therefore, does not set seeds.

Christmas Sports - Named for the fact that the originator and his children always go skiing on Christmas morning.

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