Hosta 'Fleeta Brownell Woodroffe'

An H. 'Tokudama' hybrid, this cultivar was registered by Russ O'Harra of Iowa in 1986. It forms a medium to large size mound with near white flowers blooming from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I cannot see any differences between 'Fleeta Brownell Woodroffe' and 'Tokudama Flavocircinalis'...The person, Fleeta Brownell Woodroffe, authored an article entitled, "Plantainlilies - Bold, Profuse Flowering and They Do Thrive in the Shade" that appeared in the March, 1933 issue of Better Homes and Gardens."


An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.

H. 'Aurora Borealis', H. 'Fleeta Brownell Woodruffe', H. 'Frances Williams', H. 'Maple Leaf', H. 'Olive Bailey Langdon' and H. 'Samurai'.
