Hosta 'Nathan’s Gift'


Registered by Dr. Doug Beilstein and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2022, this giant size (33 inches high by 48 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of "Beilstein Elslager Seedling" × H. 'Elatior'. The medium green foliage has a soft yellow marginal variegation early in the season. Its broadly ovate leaves are slightly wavy, slightly corrugated and slightly shiny on top and bottom. In July, pale lavender flowers bloom on scapes 48 to 50 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "Joyous hosta that extends its leaves outward as to accept every drop of rain. The variable width margins start off a soft yellow and gradually become a beautiful soft white...soft yellow margins early turn soft white later in the season."
