Hosta 'Clovelly'

A self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Split Decision', this cultivar was registered by Kent Terpening of New York in 2005. It was granted a U.S. Patent in 2009. The clump grows to a medium size about 18 inches in height and has heavily rippled with moderately corrugated, piecrusted leaves. Its pale lavender flowers begin to bloom in July followed by fertile seeds.

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "The intense marginal rippling is notable and attractive."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Grow as a specimen plant with plain-leaved foliage as a contrast...Piecrust leaf edge that stands out from the crowd."

This cultivar won the 2017 Mildred Seaver Award at the First Look hosta competition as the best seedling as chosen by the Attendees.

United States Patent: PP20612  (2009)
