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, "...it has been greatly underrated, being
ornamentally equal to 'Patriot' and 'Minuteman' which have
gained much greater popularity."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
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."
Named for early hosta pioneer
of Brookwood Gardens in Massachusetts.
