Hosta 'Joan's Alter Ego'


Registered by Dave Bowe of Ohio in 2020, this medium size (18 inches high by 18 inches wide) cultivar is a sport of H. 'Joan Altman'. It has golden-yellow, ovate foliage that is slightly cupped, slightly corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Pale lavender flowers with a broad lavender center stripe on white petals bloom in July on scapes 23 to 26 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was unknown at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Gold leaves develop a misty green center later in the fall.  The shape and size are otherwise similar to it's marginally variegated parent H. 'Joan Altman'...later in the fall the yellow gold fades to yellow and the leaf centers develop a green mist ."
