Hosta 'Mrs Raeder'


Registered by Owen Purvis of Elim Hosta Gardens in Wisconsin in 2022, this large size (24 inches high by 48 inches wide) cultivar is a sport of H. 'Pat Raeder'. The broadly ovate, dark green leaves are slightly cupped, slightly corrugated, slightly wavy, slightly twisted and slightly shiny on top and bottom. Medium lavender flowers bloom in July on 28 to 30 inch tall scapes. It occasionally sets seeds but they are non-viable.

The registration materials state: "Solid green version of H. 'Pat Raeder' has good leaf substance while the unique combination of leaf characteristics leads to an interesting and somewhat unruly looking plant."
