Hosta 'Kwick’s Color Alchemy'


Registered by Charles Kwick of Wisconsin in 2022, this upright growing cultivar is an open-pollinated seedling of H. 'Captain Kirk'. It is a medium size hosta about 17 inches high by 30 inches wide. The broadly ovate foliage is dark green, slightly rippled and slightly cupped with deeply impressed veins. From late June into July, near white flowers with very pale lavender mini-stripes bloom on scapes 24 to 32 inches tall. Seed viability was unknown at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "Velvety leaves slowly develop a color variation whereby the leaf centers seem lighter than the outer edges...leaf centers lighten somewhat as the season progresses."
