Hosta 'Creature from the Black Lagoon'


Originated by Dr. Doug Beilstein of Ohio and registered by Robert Hatt of Massachusetts in 2022, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Clear Fork River Valley' × H. 'Blue Shadows'. It is a medium size plant about 17 inches high by 26 inches wide with dark green foliage. The nearly round leaves are moderately cupped, heavily corrugated and twisted. In July, bell-shaped white flowers bloom on scapes up to 11 inches tall. Viability of the seeds was unknown at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "Extremely thick dark green leaves are intensely corrugated and very unruly.  Some leaves are cupped or partially so, some are twisted sideways or upside down while others are partially twisted one way then the other. Exceptionally tough look and feel.  White flowers peer out from underneath the leaves...shiny dark green leaves later in the two leaves looking the same."
