Hosta 'Jo Jo'


This cultivar of unidentified parentage was originated by David Stone of Connecticut and later registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio on his behalf in 1987. It is a small size plant with light green foliage with yellow to white marginal variegation. Purple flowers bloom in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Unfortunately, Peter Ruh reported to me in 2002 that the original (and only) specimen of 'Jo Jo' died'.

This cultivar was named for Pauline Banyai's granddaughter.

In The Hosta Journal (1992 Vol. 23 No. 1) there is an article by Peter Ruh about the so-called David Stone Medium or Miniature hostas which went by a numbering system that started with DSM. This cultivar was called DSM #17 and was described as "Medium-small, leaves light-green with yellow-white border, glossy on back, lanced-shaped, flowers off-white."
