Hosta 'Leola Fraim'

Wm and Eleanor Lachman of Massachusetts registered this seedling of H. 'Swoosh' in 1986. It forms a large size (22 inches high) mound of foliage that is slightly wavy and moderately corrugated with medium lavender, funnel shaped flowers in July.

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), says, " has been greatly underrated, being ornamentally equal to 'Patriot' and 'Minuteman' which have gained much greater popularity."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Lovely in a container and for flower arrangements...Leaves are more seersuckered than those of H. 'Minuteman', H. 'Patriot', or H. 'Trailblazer'. On most leaves the margin is narrower toward the lobes."
