Hosta 'Coquette'

This is a medium size (17 inches high by 41 inches wide), green hosta with white margins that are ovate-shaped and moderately corrugated. It was registered by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan in 1987 and is considered a self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Neat Splash'. Long, funnel shaped purple flowers in August followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar " one of Herb Benedict's most commonly grown cultivars."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Moderate growth rate...Conspicuously margined, paddlelike leaves."

The following poem by Judy Burns of Georgia was included in  The Hosta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 1).
I love 'Lady Isobel Barnett',
She's my favorite hosta, and yet,
I also love 'Francee',
'Naomi' and 'Nancy',
And 'Abby', and 'June', and 'Coquette'.
