Hosta 'My Child Insook'

This is a medial variegated sport of H. 'Outrageous' that was registered by Dr. Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict in 1995. It forms a medium sized (14 inches tall) mound with slightly wavy and corrugated leaves of thick substance. The pale lavender flowers bloom in late July to August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Though registered as forming a mound 28" high...is actually much less. I've seen it growing in four different collections and the largest specimen only achieved my listed size."

In 1998, a plant of this cultivar sold for $4,100 at the AHS Convention in Peoria, Illinois. (The Hosta Journal, Vol. 31, No 1, page 91).

Similar cultivars include H. 'Hideko Gowen' and H. 'Jim Wilkins'.
