Hosta 'Emerald Lightning'

Registered by B. & Ruby Klotz of Dogtown Farms in Ohio in 2018, this cultivar is a medium size (12 inches high by 24 inches wide) seedling of H. 'El Ni˝o'. The dark green foliage has a white medial (center) variegation with purple specks on the underside of the petioles. Its leaves are relatively flat, ovate and dull on top. Pale lavender flowers bloom from August into September on scapes only 6 to 7 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Dark green with narrow white center and narrow strip of lime green between the two. Flowers are held on very short scapes beneath the foliage..."
