Hosta 'May T. Watts'

Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this tissue culture sport of H. 'Golden Sunburst' in 1985. It is a large size hosta with yellow leaves which suffer from the drawstring effect later in the season. Bell-shaped, near white flowers bloom in clusters from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...found in the early days of hosta tissue culture, before anyone realized that some white margined mutants out of tissue culture would develop the drawstring effect...not only puckers and tears at maturity, but is also develops spring desiccation burn!"

May T. Watts was a staff naturalist at Morton Arboretum near Chicago, IL.
