Hosta 'George M. Dallas'
 

Dr. Doug Beilstein of Ohio originated this slow growing cultivar which is the result of the cross of a streaked H. 'Gold Crown' × H. 'Green Sheen'. It was jointly registered with Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2009. The large size hosta grows to around 20 inches in height with a width of 40 inches. Its foliage is dark green with a golden yellow marginal variegation and is lightly corrugated, ovate, lightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. Lavender, tubular flowers bloom from mid-July into August.

It is named for the 11th U. S. Vice-President, George M. Dallas who was also Mayor of Philadelphia at one time...but I don't know why.
