Hosta 'Lauren's Delight'

Registered by Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio in 2005, this medium size (16 inches  high by 30 inches wide) cultivar is of unidentified parentage. Its medium blue-green foliage is nearly round, slightly rippled, cupped and dull on top. Bell shape flowers bloom from June into July on scapes up to 23 inches tall.

According to the registration materials: "...cupped, good blue...greener later..."

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."
