Hosta 'Lucy Vitols'
 

This sport of H. 'Christmas Gold' was registered by Mildred Seaver of Massachusetts in 1989. It is a medium size hosta about 18 inch high by 40 inches wide with slightly cupped, moderately corrugated foliage with thick substance. The medium lavender flowers bloom in late June.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...combines nicely with 'Christmas Gold' and 'Christmas Tree' in the garden."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Very slow to establish and increase...The crumpled and puckered mature leaves almost reach a state of distortion, a feature much prized by flower arrangers."

 

"I guess I can't resist hostas that are named for people I know or have known, but this hosta, named for a good friend of Mildred's, is a beautiful plant that will catch your eye wherever it is placed in your garden. Like some others that I have chosen, it has a heavily textured leaf with a predominately yellow'green center (with dark green veins prominently marked), and an irregular green margin. The leaf with its thick substance and heavy corrugation is another plant that resists its slug attackers."

 

"An appealing, medium hosta remarkable for its heavy substance and puckered foliage. The plant is compact with rounded leaves that are chartreuse in the center and darker green on the edge. It grows vigorously and provides a bright spot of color in the landscape. Hatfield Gardens sold it last year for $200.00"
