Hosta 'El Capitan'

Wm & Eleanor Lachman registered this seedling of H. 'Beatrice' in 1987. This very large plant grows to 26 inches in height and spreads to about 50 inches wide. The leaves are moderately corrugated, slightly wavy and have good substance. In late July, it bears medium lavender flowers.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Carnival', H. 'Celebrity' and H. 'Standing Ovation'.
