The Genus HOSTA by
W. George Schmid (1991), this
is a reversion (sport) of the streaked cultivar, H. 'Beatrice'.
This is a hosta from
Williams of Massachusetts but registered on her behalf by
Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1987. It
forms a medium size plant with green foliage. Purple flowers
bloom in August.
Since the mother plant is a streaked mutation of the
H. sieboldii forma spathulata, that means:
H. 'Beatrice Green' and H. 'Green Beatrice'
H. sieboldii forma spathulata.
is the non-variegated green form of H. sieboldii
originating with the unstable H. sieboldii
'Beatrice'. This is a back-mutation to the parental form
H. sieboldii f. spathulata. There are many
different forms of the latter so exactly which clone
this taxon represents is unknown."
