Hosta 'Cup of Grace'
 

 

This cultivar is an open-pollinated hybrid of (H. 'Halcyon' × H. 'Spoons') × (H. 'Breeder's Choice' × Unknown) was registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2009. The upright mound grows to a large size about 19 inches in height and a spread of 43 inches. Its dark green foliage is very shiny on top and bottom, deeply cupped, heavily corrugated and nearly round with a cordage base. The tubular flowers bloom from mid-July into August.

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "Doug and Mardy Beilstein neatly combined cupping, corrugation and a dark green leaf color along with a vase-shaped mound habit in this cultivar. In sum, 'Cup of Grace' is a tremendous plant!"

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "Deeply cupped and rugosed dark green leaves all point to the sky. Certainly cups from above. Pure white flowers just above the mound make a stunning contrast. Available spring 2010."
