Originated by Rick Goodenough
this non-registered cultivar is a streaked hybrid of
H. ‘Leaping Lipizzan’.
An article by Rick Goodenough in
Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 1) states that, “Pretty
too, but in a more striking sense, is ‘Gran Premio’, with its strongly upturned
leaf edges. I can hardly wait to see if this intriguing trait will be passed
along to its seedlings.”
