Hosta 'Green Sleeve'

A medium size (18 inches high) hosta with medial variegation, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Summer Music' from Piet Warmerdam of the Netherlands. The green leaves are broadly ovate, slightly corrugated, wavy and of average substance. The pale lavender flowers bloom in July.


This is an example of where there can be confusion in hosta names. There are 3 cultivars which have very similar names including H. 'Green Sleeves', H. 'Green Sleeve' and H. 'Greensleeves'. According to the rules, H. 'Greensleeves' is the acceptable name since it has been registered with The American Hosta Society. The other two names are too similar and need to be changed.
