Hosta 'Lucky Star'


This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. One is registered and, therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Lucky Star' while the other is a non-registered plant and needs to be renamed to avoid further confusion.


Registered by Randy Goodwin of Indiana in 2020, this miniature size (5 inches high by 6 inches wide) cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It has medium green foliage with creamy to pure white marginal variegation which extends down the sides of the petioles.

The nearly round leaves are slightly folded, slightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. Pale lavender flowers with a single purple stripe at the base of the petals and a white throat bloom from mid-August into September. Its flower scapes are 12 to 15 inches tall and it sets viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Appealing medium green roundish leaves encircled by white margins form a nice symmetrical mounded clump...margins change from cream to white."

This non-registered cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Loleta Powell' originated by Alex Malloy of New York. It is a small size hosta with streaked variegation.
