Hosta 'Joseph'

This cultivar was registered by Bob Kuk of Kuk's Forest in 1990 as a sport of H. 'Josephine'. It grows into a large (20 inches high) mound with shiny, dark green foliage that is slightly corrugated and has good substance. Tall scapes (33 inches tall) produce pale purple flowers in late July and into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has always been one of my favorite green-leaved cultivars. It offers shiny, dark green foliage, attractive flowers, and a good growth rate. Leave space for it in your garden."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Crocodile Rock', H. 'Garnet Prince', H. 'Invincible' and H. 'Second Wind'.
