Hosta 'Dream Boat'
 

Registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2009, this upright growing cultivar is a seedling of H. nigrescens. It is of a large size (22 inches high by 40 inches wide) with medium green foliage. The leaves are ovate, cupped and very shiny on top. Tubular flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 28 inches tall.

According to the registration materials: "...cupping effect with an elongated leaf, appearing like a boat..."

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "From the day that this plant was 1 year old it had a beautiful cupped appearance to it. Definitely a boat and obviously an answer to a dream!!! The elongated leaf definitely make you look its direction. A hosta that comes from a not very fertile specie. Currently in TC."
