Hosta 'Liberty Bell'
 

Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan registered this hybrid of H. 'Yellow Splash' × H. 'Neat Splash' in 1985. The plant grows into a medium size hosta around 15 inches high with a spread of 42 inches. Its wavy, dark green foliage has yellow marginal variegation with some yellow and green streaks. Dark purple flowers bloom in August.


An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2014 Vol. 45 No. 2) states that, "H. 'Liberty Bell' crossed with ('Urajiro Hachijo' × H. pycnophylla) is a favorite pod parent of Don's (Don Dean). He used it to produce H. 'Celtic Bouquet' and H. 'Peek-a-boo Purple', both registered in 2011, and H. 'Ebony Towers' and H. 'Garnet Spires', in 2005. (Special Note: Parentages of 'Garnet Spires' and 'Peek-a-boo Purple' were corrected in the 2013 Registrations issue)..."
