Hosta 'Lunar Magic'

This cultivar was registered by Ran Lydell of Cooks Nursery and Eagle Bay Gardens in New York in 1994. It is a sport of H. 'Lunar Orbit' which grows into a large size hosta about 21 inches in height with a spread of 42 inches. The medium gold leaves have a dark green marginal variegation. It bears funnel shaped, pale lavender flowers from mid-July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "As much as I've tried, I cannot find any difference between most specimens of 'Lunar Magic' and 'Lunar Orbit' (its mother plant). 'Lunar Magic' is supposed to have wider green margins, but after evaluating mature specimens in a few gardens, it appears that the two are the same."
