Hosta 'Gunsmoke'
 

This cultivar is a cross between H. 'Sagae' × H. 'Grey Piecrust' that was registered by Roy Herold of Massachusetts in 2000. Very pale lavender flowers appear from late June into July on this giant size (30 inches high by 65 inches wide) mound of blue-green slightly rippled foliage.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...ranks highly in the area of good blue foliage color and attractive marginal rippling. The result is a spectacular, large size mound of rippled, blue-green foliage."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Use as a background plant or single specimen. Vigorous...Leaves are slow to assume their optimum width."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Moonlight Sonata'.
