Hosta 'Color Parade'
 

Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this cultivar in 2003. It is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Fragrant Bouquet' which forms a medium size hosta about 17 inches high by 33 inches wide. The fragrant flowers are very pale lavender in color and bloom in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "It has a tendency to sport to a white-centered form that has much less vigor. Remove such shoots as they appear."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Protect from late frost damage. A valuable plant for breeding streaked, sun-tolerant hostas with fragrant flowers."

Similar cultivars include H. ''Paul Aden''.
