Hosta 'Evelyn McCafferty'

Registered by Anne Arett of Minnesota in 1975, this cultivar, according to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), is "...possibly a hybrid of 'Tokudama'..." It forms a large size (28 inches high) mound of foliage with thick substance and heavily corrugated, cupped leaves. Near-white flowers are borne from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...never achieved the level of popularity it surely merits...Its biggest negative may be a very slow growth rate."

Schmid (1991) says that this hosta was originated by "Lehman". We have a person named Dick Lehman as originator of other hostas but we have no further information on him so, until we learn otherwise, we will guess that he is the person referenced. If you know about this, please contact us.
