Hosta 'Magnificent Michele'
 

This cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Frosty Morn' which was registered by Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio in 2005. It is a medium to large size mound of blue-green foliage which changes to green later in the season. The foliage is heavily corrugated and has thick substance. Very pale lavender flowers bloom in July. It produces viable seeds.

Dr. Dick and Jane Ward have named several of their hostas in honor of close relatives. They let me know that, "H. 'Splendid Sarah' is named after our daughter, who is the mother of granddaughters after whom H. 'Kaitlyn' and H. 'Emma are named. H. 'Lauren's Delight' is named after a daughter-in-law, and she is the mother of Alison, of H.' Alison'.  H. 'Magnificent Michelle' is named after a daughter-in-law."
