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.

There is an image of this cultivar on the Hosta Library. From the photo on the HL website, it appears to be a very upright, giant size hosta with broadly ovate, blue-green leaves. Near white flowers bloom from July into August. This non-registered cultivar was originated by Rachel Soucek of Ohio.

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

In The Genus HOSTA by W. George Schmid (1991), this cultivar is listed as being a large size plant of H. seiboldiana background from Chet Tompkins of Oregon.
