Hosta 'Dover Downs'

This large size, non-registered hostas was originated by Rick Goodenough of Massachusetts. The wavy, ovate to rounded leaves are blue-green with creamy yellow streaked variegation. It is a hybrid of H. 'Leaping Lipizzan'.

An article by Rick Goodenough in The Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 1) states that, “While ‘Leaping Lipizzan’ has some blue tones early in the season, ‘Dover Downs’, ‘Breeder’s Cup’ and ‘Suffolk Downs’ all have stronger early season blue. H. ‘Dover Downs’ features leaves with a more elongated form and a nice point on the tip, as well as wonderful wavy edges.”
