Hosta 'Leola Fraim'

Wm and Eleanor Lachman 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 Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), says, " has been greatly underrated, being ornamentally equal to 'Patriot' and 'Minuteman' which have gained much greater popularity."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (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."
