Hosta 'Fisher's Cream Edge'


In 1992, Peter Ruh of Ohio registered this cultivar on behalf of the originator, Eunice V. Fisher of Wisconsin who found this sport of H. 'Fortunei Hyacinthina' in the 1960's. This large size plant  has pale lavender flower from late July into August.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), H. fortunei 'Cream Edge' is actually the cultivar H. 'Fisher's Cream Edge'.

Mark Zilis (2009) advises "...don't confuse this cultivar with 'Krossa Cream Edge'..."

"Plant is a H. 'Fortunei Stenantha' sport with a ("cream") margin on green center. The margin retains its yellowish white color until late into the season and never turns completely white, so this plant is distinct from H. 'Fortunei Albomarginata' and other margined forms of H. 'Fortunei'."
