Hosta 'Mister Green Genes'

Registered by Randy Goodwin of Indiana in 2017, this medium size (12 inches high by 24 inches wide) cultivar is a fast growing seedling of H. 'Fickle Blue Genes'. The medium green leaves are nearly round, slightly folded, wavy, slightly corrugated and very shiny on top. Bell-shape, pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes about 18 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was undetermined at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Spring unfurling displays a tight floral bouquet appearance, later is a nice symmetrical clump of shiny leaves."

Of course, the TV character on the children's show, Captain Kangaroo, was named Mr. Green Jeans.
