Hosta 'Moonstruck'

This sport of H. 'Dress Blues' is a cultivar originated by Wm Zumbar of Ohio and registered in 2009 on his behalf by Kevin Walek (Hosta Registrar). It grows into a small size (10 inches high by 24 inches wide) plant with narrowly ovate, slightly cupped leaves and has pale lavender flowers in August. It forms seeds but their viability was undetermined at the time of registration. The foliage changes from yellow to white as the season progresses.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has achieved widespread popularity due to its bright variegation, dense mound habit, and good growth rate. Cull non-true shoots as they develop."


Oops! Sure looks as if the marginally variegated plant below is labeled as H. 'Moonstruck'. Unfortunately, the actual 'Moonstruck' is the one shown above. So, don't always believe the labels...even at a The American Hosta Society Hosta Display Garden. - Mr PGC
