Hosta 'Fluff and Puff'


Registered by Don Dean of Minnesota in 2020, this cultivar is an open pollinated seedling of an unnamed hosta that resulted from the following cross: {[(H. ‘Liberty Bell’ × (H. ‘Urajiro Hachijo’ × H. pycnophylla)) × H. ‘Whimsey’] × (H. ‘Party Favor’ × H. ‘Grand Slam’)} It is a small size (10 inches high by 23 inches wide) hosta with greenish-yellow foliage.

The nearly round leaves are heavily rippled, moderately wavy, moderately corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Near white flowers with very pale lavender interior stripes and translucent margins bloom in July on scapes 16 to 23 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was unknown at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Low growing, small sized clump of heavily wrinkled and puckered yellow leaves...becomes bright yellow as season progresses."
