Hosta 'Cyclops'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neighter are currently registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the others would have to be renamed.

In Greek mythology, Cyclops was a one-eyed giant.


Registered by Rachel Soucek of Ohio in 2005, this upright cultivar is of unidentified parentage. The size is not listed in the registration materials but by images on the Hosta Library, it would appear to be a large to giant size plant with intensely blue-green foliage. The nearly round leaves are heavily corrugated and slightly shiny on the top. Near white flowers bloom from mid-July into August followed by seeds in green pods.

The registration materials state: "...giant leaves that grow upright."

Seedlings of this cultivar include H. 'Giantland Pac-Man'.
