Hosta 'Dorset Clown'

This seedling of H. 'Dorset Blue' is a non-registered cultivar introduced by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict in the early 1990's. It is a small plant with streaked foliage with very pale lavender flowers blooming in July. This cultivar is part of the "Dorset Series" of hostas.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has been highly sought since it became known in the early 1990's. As a heavily variegated, small sized Tardiana type cultivar, it can be used as a source of small, thick-substanced, variegated seedlings."
