Hosta 'Clown's Collar'

This cultivar forms a small size mound about 8 inches in height and 15 inches wide. It is a sport of H. 'Dorset Clown' that was registered by Don Dean of Minnesota in 2004. The leaves are slightly corrugated and have thick substance. Very pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...the stable, white-margined form of 'Dorset Clown', a heavily streaked cultivar."
