Hosta 'Hans'

This non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Andrew' from Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina. It has blue-green foliage with a white medial (center) variegation. Forms a large size clump about 21 inches in height with a spread of about 32 inches. Pale lavender flowers open from mid-June into July and form numerous seed pods.


An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.

H. 'Hans' and H. 'Lionheart'.
