Hosta 'Glen Ray'

This medium size, non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Striptease' was originated by Viktoria Serafin of Glenbrook Farm in New York. It is very similar to the parent plant and has green foliage with a very narrow white medial (center) variegation. This fast growing cultivar forms a mound of slightly wavy, smooth textured foliage of average substance. It bears pale lavender flowers from mid-July into August followed by viable seeds.


An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.

H. 'Gamma Ray', H. 'Glen Ray' and H. 'Robert's Rapier'.
