Hosta 'Midnight Ride'

Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this tissue culture sport of H. 'Paul Revere' in 2004. It forms a medium size mound and bears lavender flowers starting in mid-July.



An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2008 Vol. 39 No. 2) states that, "H. 'Paul Revere'...also medio-variegated, is like 'Loyalist', or perhaps even identical to it. Also found in tissue-culturing 'Patriot', 'Paul Revere' has leaves with a dark green margin and wide white center. I'm now seeing all-green leaves on a few old 'Paul Revere' clumps. Do hostas with these green tetraploid leaves have a name? Mark Zilis calls them H. 'Midnight Ride'..."
