Hosta 'Green Sheen'

This hybrid of H. 'Green Wedge' H. 'Chartreuse Wedge' was registered in 1978 by Paul Aden. It forms a giant size (36 inches high by 48 inches wide) 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 followed by viable seeds.

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