Hosta 'Luna Moth'

Originated by ill Meyer of Connecticut but registered on his behalf by AHS/G. H. Alley in 2020, this fast growing cultivar is a sport of H. 'Parky's Prize'. It is a small to medium size (13 inches high by 36 inches wide) with moderate bluish-green (126A RHS Colour Chart) foliage that has a moderate yellow-green (146C RHS Colour Chart) marginal variegation. The broadly ovate leaves are slightly cupped and slightly shiny on top. Medium lavender flowers bloom from June into July on scapes about 22 inches tall. It is considered "very reluctant to set pods."

The registration materials state: "...Quick to form a symmetrical clump of thick heart shaped leaves.  Very wide margins draw the eye from a distance."

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "Very few hostas come close to it in the ratio of a wide gold margin to a narrow green center and still perform well in the garden...combines nicely with 'Birchwood Parky's Gold'...'Parky's Prize', and 'Sweet Home Chicago' in the landscape."
