Hosta 'Handy Hatfield'
 

A sport of H. 'Sun Glow', this cultivar was registered by Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio in 1996. It is a medium to large size plant growing to around 17 inches in height and a width of 40 inches. The leaves are moderately corrugated with thick substance. Near white flowers bloom in late June.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...named in honor of the owner of Hatfield Gardens, Stoutsville, OH. During the 1980s and into the 1990s, Handy's nursery dominated the hosta collector's market by being the first to offer introductions from such prominent hybridizers as Wm and Eleanor Lachman, Dr. Kevin Vaughn, Dick Ward, Roy Herold, and others."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Laura and Darrell'.
