Hosta 'Ice Crystals'

 

Registered by Ruby & B. Klotz of Dogtown Farms in Ohio in 2020, this medium size (15 inches high by 30 inches wide) cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is an upright growing hosta with light yellowish-green foliage that has a creamy white marginal variegation. The leaves are broadly ovate, moderately wavy, slightly rippled, moderately corrugated and dull on top. Light green color with variable white streaks carries down the petioles. Pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers that are white on the inside base with lavender centers and pale lavender on the outer edges bloom in July followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Short but upright posture with most leaves growing upward (like crystals).  White margins are wider towards the tip and narrower at the base...Very bright yellow in spring changing to light green later."
