Hosta 'Georgia Sweetheart'

Bill Silvers of Georgia registered this tissue culture sport of H. 'American Sweetheart' in 2008. It grows into a large size hosta about 23 inches in height and 42 inches in width. Pale lavender blooms appear in mid-July. This is a 'Fortunei' type hosta.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...immature plants of 'Georgia Sweetheart' that I've seen so far did not exhibit the thick substance of 'American Sweetheart'."

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "...'Georgia Sweetheart' was registered as a sport of 'American Sweetheart' in 2008, but the consensus among growers is that it sported from another cultivar...possibly 'Captain Kirk'."
