Hosta 'Flash of Light'

This is a non-registered sport of H. 'Patriot' introduced by Jim Anderson of Winterberry Farms in Georgia. This small size plant  is similar in appearance to H. 'Fire and Ice'. The medium lavender flowers bloom from late July into August.

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) says, "I've seen this growing in a few collections and cannot distinguish it from 'Fire and Ice' and other 'Patriot' sports.

An article on "Look Alikes" in The Hosta Journal (2007 Vol. 38 No.1) listed H. 'Flash of Light', H. 'Loyalist', H. 'Paul Revere' and H. 'Fire and Ice' as cultivars that are difficult to distinguish from each other.
