Hosta 'Grünspecht'
or 'Gruenspecht'

This is a sport of H. 'Halcyon' which has green leaves was originated by Heinz Klose of Staudengärtnerei Klose in Germany but was registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio as a Tardiana-type hybrid in 2003. It has dark green foliage with thick substance. Very pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...translates to "green woodpecker". This cultivar should not be listed as 'Grunspecht', though 'Gruenspecht' is acceptable. It is identical to the other green-leaved sports of 'Halcyon'."
