Hosta 'Dorothy'

This is a cultivar introduced by Frances Williams of Massachusetts in 1943 and registered on her behalf by The American Hosta Society in 1986 as a hybrid of H. 'Decorata' × H. 'Fortunei'. It forms a medium size (16 inches high) mound of dark green foliage which spreads by rhizomes which makes it an excellent ground cover plant. Light purple flowers bloom on many scapes per clump from July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...mainly of historical interest, i.e., being from Frances Williams and one of the first American hosta cultivars, its rhizomatous habit lends itself to ground cover usage."

"Plant is a hybrid with leaves like H. decorata (now H. 'Decorata') and funnel-shaped lavender flowers like H. 'Fortunei'. Leaf grey on back. Flowers in July."
