Hosta 'Hoosier Harmony'
 

This is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Royal Standard' that was originated by Mark Zilis of Illinois but registered by the Indianapolis Hosta Society in 1995. This medium size (18 inches high by 36 inches wide) mound has leaf centers that change from yellow to green as the summer progresses. It bears a large grouping of white flowers in August.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Large, white, fragrant flowers make the hosta worth the trouble of growing it."

An article about H. 'Hoosier Harmony' (originated by Bob Solberg) by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (1996 Vol. 27 No. 1) states that, "I think this is the best new introduction of 1995...It has all the great characteristics of 'Royal Standard'. It is a good grower, with big white fragrant flowers, that will tolerate sunny locations given ample water."

This plant was distributed at the National Convention of The American Hosta Society in Indianapolis in 1995.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Chelsea Ore', H. 'Guacamole', H. 'Royal Accolade' and H. 'Seth Becker'.
