Hosta 'Excalibur'
 

David Stone of Connecticut originated this cultivar of unidentified parentage. It was registered by The American Hosta Society on his behalf in 1986. The plant grows into a medium size hosta about 13 inches high with a spread of around 25 inches. Its green foliage has a white marginal variegation. Purple flowers are borne in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...one of several 'Ginko Craig' look-alikes...often misspelled 'Excaliber'."

"Schmid (1991) credits "Piedmont" as the originator of this cultivar. That would be Henry Payne of  Piedmont Gardens in Connecticut. However, previous references have said that Payne introduced several of Stone's cultivars through his nursery.

This cultivar was named by Henry and Frank Payne of Piedmont Gardens according to Zilis (2009).
