Hosta 'Loleta Powell'

Registered by Paul Aden of New York in 1980, this cultivar is a hybrid of H. 'Fascination' × H. 'Intrigue'. The plant grows into a medium size hosta about 16 inches in height by 46 inches in width. Its highly variable foliage is green with streaked variegation of green and yellow. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "At one time, this was well-known, but it has become scarce. The foliage varies from garden to garden, leaf to leaf, making it difficult to maintain the true, streaked cultivar."

This plant is named for another hosta guessed it, Loleta Powell of Powell's Iris Haven in North Carolina.
