Hosta 'Columbus Circle'

Originated by Vic Santa Lucia and introduced by Iron Gate Gardens, this plant is a sport of a green seedling derived from H. 'Iron Gate Glamour' x H. sieboldiana 'Frances Williams'. It was registered on his behalf by Kevin Walek in 2009. 'Columbus Circle' is a medium size hosta growing to around 17 inches in height with a spread of about 42 inches. The medium to dark green foliage has a white marginal variegation. Its leaves are slightly rippled, broadly ovate, cupped, slightly rippled and have a glaucous bloom on the bottom. Very pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-July to August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "For unknown reasons, few collectors grow this attractive plant and even fewer nurseries offer it for sale."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Bold Edger', H. 'Crusader' and H. 'Leola Fraim'.
