Hosta 'Gorgon'

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Medusa' which was registered in 2003 by Jim Schwarz of Jim's Hostas of Iowa (now owned by Uniquely Hostas of Wisconsin) . It forms a medium size mound about 16 inches high by 36 inches wide. The foliage is narrowly ovate, moderately rippled and moderately shiny on the underside. In late summer, it bears purple flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...far outstrips 'Medusa', its mother plant, in terms of overall size and growth rate...would make an excellent replacement for H. 'Lancifolia' in the landscape.

In Greek mythology, a gorgon is a horrible creature. Medusa was a gorgon.
