Hosta 'Dancing in the Rain'

Discovered by Clarence (C.H.) Falstad, III and registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2004, this cultivar is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Blue Umbrellas'. In 2005, it was granted U.S. Plant Patent. It is a large size (28 inches high by 49 inches wide) plant with very pale lavender flowers from late June into July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to start but needs regular division once established...The leaf center develops pale green frosting in extreme summer heat."

Similar cultivars include H. 'American Masterpiece' and H. 'Eminent Domain'.

United States Patent: PP15977  (2005)
