Hosta 'May'

A tissue culture sport of H. 'June', this cultivar was registered by Hans Hansen of Minnesota in 1999. It is a small size hosta which grows about 7 to 12 inches tall and spreads to around 16 inches with foliage that has good substance. The pale bluish lavender flowers bloom in late July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...closely resembles the other gold sports out of 'June'."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Like its parent, it needs careful placing in the garden to get the best from the available light."

As noted, this cultivar may vary in color depending on the amount of light or the time in the season. The picture above was taken in late June while the one below was taken on May 4. The bottom shot was from August.
