Hosta 'Janie Girl'


Registered by Clarence Hanna of Ohio in 2020, this large to giant size (28 inches high by 68 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Yellow Splash' × H. 'Kirkside Blue'. Its foliage is dark green with a yellow medial (center) variegation and this color pattern extends down into the petioles. The broadly ovate leaves are slightly cupped, slightly corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Moderate lavender flowers with white stripes bloom from mid-July into August on scapes 32 to 38 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Very dark green margins transition to a light green area bordering irregularly shaped rich yellow centers.  Every visitor to the garden spots ‘Janie Girl’ from a distance and wants to buy it.  Named for my wife Jane Hanna...yellow centers become white late in the season."
