Hosta 'King of Spades'
 

A hybrid of H. 'Neat Splash' H. 'Blue Moon', this cultivar was registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2007. The medium size plant has dark green leaves with distinct puckers in the center. Lavender flowers bloom from mid-August into September.

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "Do you play cards? The leaf is definitely a spade! Look at the border and you will find a flat leaf surface, however the medio portion of the leaf is very rugose. Also the mound is not crested but rather flat, so all of the spades point skyward. Available in 2008."
