Hosta 'Frog Milhouse'

Registered by Randy Goodwin of Indiana in 2016, this small size (7 inches high by 18 inches wide) cultivar is of unidentified parentage. The leaves are light green with pale yellow marginal variegation. Its broadly ovate leaves are slightly rippled, moderately cupped, twisted, wavy, slightly corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Tubular flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes 12 to 24 inches tall.

The registration materials state: "...narrow creamy margin on a small to medium, fast growing cultivar..."

The actor, Smiley Burnett, played the role of Frog Milhouse or Millhouse (depending on the website) as the sidekick to Gene Autry in some cowboy movies in the early 1940s.
