Hosta 'Dew Drop'

This sport of H. 'Gold Drop' was registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 1988. The small size mound has leaves which have a green center with a very thin white edge. Lavender flowers bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...sometimes develops a drawstring effect due to a very narrow white margin that stops growing, while the green center continues to expand. The inevitable pressure that builds up causes the margin to rip and tear."

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Grow best in dappled shade, too much sun can cause a "drawstring" effect. Excellent for the woodland garden and raised bed."
