Hosta 'Electrum Stater'

A sport of H. 'Abiqua Recluse', this cultivar was registered by Alex Malloy of New York in 1997. The medium size mound grows to about 11 inches in height with a spread of 30 inches. It has leaves with a thick substance. Very pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...shows evidence of being a tetraploid. The foliar substance is much thicker than its mother plant and its general growth pattern indicates that it is polyploid..."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Tolerates sun all day except in the hottest climates, where two hours of morning sun is sufficient. Increases rapidly...The tri-toned foliage at different stages of its color changes and the streaks jetting into the leaf center."

The earliest coins were made from electrum, an alloy of gold and silver. A stater is a coin used in ancient Greece.
