Hosta 'Frensham Heart Beat'


Registered by June Colley and John Baker of England in 2020, this fast growing cultivar is an open-pollinated seedling of an unnamed seedling of H. nakaiana. It is a medium size hosta about 12 inches high by 23 inches wide. The broadly ovate foliage is blue-green with a white marginal variegation. It is relatively flat and has a glaucous bloom on top. Medium lavender flowers with flaring petals (some facing upwards) bloom from June into July on scapes up to 18 inches tall. It does not set seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Large flowers with flaring petals are nicely displayed against well proportioned dark blue leaves."
