Hosta 'Green Sheen'

This hybrid of H. 'Green Wedge' and H. 'Chartreuse Wedge' was registered in 1978 by Paul Aden. It forms a giant size (30 inches high) mound of foliage that is blue-green when it emerges in the spring but quickly loses the waxy bloom and become green by early summer. It bears near white flowers that bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), this cultivar "...acts like a green 'Sum and Substance'."
