Jim Schwarz of
Jim's Hostas of Iowa (now owned by Uniquely
Hostas of Wisconsin) registered this sport of H. 'Sum It Up' in 2000. It
grows to a height of 36 inches with a spread of around 80
inches. The unruly green foliage has a chartreuse colored
marginal variegation. Lavender flowers bloom in August.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "In the garden 'Friar Tuck' takes on a most unusual
character. The way its foliage bends and twists, then curves
under at the margin, is magnified by the large size and
extremely thick substance."
