Hosta 'Grover Cleveland'
 

This seedling selection was originated by Hajime Sugita of Japan and was registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio on his behalf in 2001. It grows into a large size hosta about 2 feet tall and spreads out over 4 feet wide. The heavily corrugated foliage is broadly ovate in shape and is somewhat cupped with thick substance. It bears very pale lavender flowers from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...from seed that Hajime Sugita of Okazaki, Japan had sent to Pete in 1986. 'Grover Cleveland', named for the 22nd & 24th President of the U.S., was one of those seedlings. In the garden it matures as a striking, large size mound of rich blue foliage."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Powder Blue' and H. 'Ulysses S. Grant'.


Stephen Grover Cleveland was the 22nd (1885 to 1889) and 24th (1893 to 1897) President of the United States.
