'Drama Queen'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. One is registered and, therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Drama Queen' while the other is a non-registered plant and needs to be renamed to avoid further confusion.

A large size (24 inches high by 40 inches wide) cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered by Chick Wasitis of Bridgewood Gardens in 2011. The medium green leaves with white marginal variegation are lightly wavy, broadly ovate and slightly shiny on top. Tubular shaped flowers bloom from June into July in Virginia.

This non-registered cultivar of unidentified parentage (H. yingeri background suspected) was originated by Dean Stark of Iowa. A medium size hosta, it has shiny, very dark green foliage which is very shiny on the bottom.

On the Hosta Library, there is a third hosta named 'Drama Queen' shown with Alttara Scheer of Connecticut as the originator.
