Hosta 'Kaitlyn'
 

Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio registered this seedling of H. 'Pin Stripe Sister' in 1998. The large size plant grows to 26 inches in height with a spread of around 66 inches. It has green foliage with a yellow to creamy white marginal variegation. The leaves are ovate, moderately wavy and come to a long point at the tip. Pale lavender flowers bloom in May.

Dr. Dick and Jane Ward have named several of their hostas in honor of close relatives. They let me know that, "H. 'Splendid Sarah' is named after our daughter, who is the mother of granddaughters after whom H. 'Kaitlyn' and H. 'Emma are named. H. 'Lauren's Delight' is named after a daughter-in-law, and she is the mother of Alison, of H.' Alison'.  H. 'Magnificent Michelle' is named after a daughter-in-law."
