Hosta 'Eola Salad Bowl'

Les and Steve Hottovy of Beyond Green LLC in Oregon registered this seedling of unidentified parentage in 2004. It forms a small size (8 inches high by 24 inches wide) mound with heavily rippled, curved leaves. Purple, funnel shaped flowers bloom in late July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Not suitable for containers but ideal for a raised bed with other small hostas, such as H. 'Little Wonder' or H. 'Island Charm'. Deserves to be better known."

An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2002 Vol. 33 No. 1) quotes Steve Hottovy "Hosta 'Eola Salad Bowl' is a chance seedling...grown from mixed seed I purchased from Walden West in Scotts Mills, Oregon in 1985...The batch of seedlings showed great diversity. In 1987 I selected a small one from among them and gave it to Monrovia. At the time I was propagator for Monrovia of Dayton, Oregon...Several people remarked that it looked like a salad ready to eat, due to the leaf color, size and wavy appearance. So it was dubbed 'Salad Bowl'. 'Eola' is the name of the Willamette valley hills around my house..."
