This is a seedling of
Trudy Van Wyke of Iowa.
From a photo on the
Hosta Library, it appears to be a medium to large size
hosta with pointed, blue-green foliage that has a creamy
yellow streaked variegation. The leaves are slightly
corrugated and slightly wavy.
An article by Rick Goodenough in
Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 1) states that, “At the
time I planted my ‘Leaping Lipizzan’ test seeds in 2008. I shared the same
seeds with numerous folks who wanted to try them…Trudy Van Wyke…has named one of
these fine blue streakers ‘Hosana’.
Jeff Moore has an interesting and fairly
rare yellow streaker from this lot that he calls ‘Stewball’ from the Peter, Paul
and Mary song about a racehorse.”
