Hosta 'Lady Guinevere'

This sport of H. 'Elisabeth' was registered (2005) and patented by Gerardus Heemskerk of Heemskerk Vaste Planten in the Netherlands. It is a gold colored plant with green marginal variegation that grows into a medium size (10 inches high by 18 inches wide) clump. The leaves are narrowly ovate, have a twisted tip and moderately rippled margins. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to average growth rate...Best in a border with yellow-leaved hostas and dark green ferns. Divide regularly...Noticeably rippled leaf edges are unusual in a medio-variegated hosta and add greatly to its attraction."

This cultivar was registered with The American Hosta Society\ as 'Lady Guinevere' but patented with the U.S. government as 'Lady Guineverre' (two r's).

United States Patent: PP15591  (2005)
