A 1984 introduction by
Inc. of Michigan,
this miniature cultivar has chartreuse leaves with white
margins. The funnel shaped lavender flowers are borne on a 10
inch scape from June into July. It is a sport of H. 'Gold Drop'.
The Hostapedia by
Mark Zilis (2009), "Historically, 'Crown Jewel' ranks as one of the
first hosta sports from
tissue culture propagation. It appeared
in cultures of 'Gold Drop' in the late 1970s at Walters
Gardens...Unfortunately, it is not a very good plant. The
margins are thin, often causing them to rip and tear."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Dew
Drop' and H. 'Gold Edger Supreme'.
