Hosta 'Hudson Bay'
aka SHADOWLANDS® 'Hudson Bay'

A hosta which was granted a U.S. patent in 2013 after being registered in 2012 by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan. The new cultivar was discovered by Linda C. Veldeman as a tissue culture sport of H. 'Eskimo Pie'.

The foliage is moderately corrugated, slightly wavy, broadly ovate and has a glaucous bloom on top. Near white, tubular flowers bloom from June into July.

This plant is part of the SHADOWLAND group of hostas from Walters Gardens, Inc.
