Hosta 'Eye Declare'

Registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2005, this cultivar was discovered by Clarence (C.H.) Falstad, III as a tissue culture sport of H. 'Sea Fire'. It is a medium size (12 inches high by 16 inches wide) plant with leaves that are broadly ovate and moderately seersuckered. The flower buds, scapes and petioles are red in color. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late July into August. 'Eye Declare' was also granted a U.S. patent in 2008.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "At its best from spring to early summer. Grow with dark green foliage to emphasize the vivid leaf color contrasts accentuated by the red flower buds, shoots, and petioles...Smaller than its parent."

United States Patent: PP18466  (2008)
