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."

Named for early hosta pioneer Leola Fraim of Brookwood Gardens in Massachusetts.
