Hosta 'Night Owl'


Registered by Dr. Doug Beilstein and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2022, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Purgatory' × H. 'Lakeside Sir Logan'. It is a large size hosta about 18 inches high by 36 inches wide with dark green foliage that has a creamy white medial (center) variegation. The nearly round leaves are slightly cupped, slightly rippled and the white color extends down into the petioles. Medium lavender flowers bloom from August into September on bracts up to 26 inches tall followed by non-viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "Stunning looking plant hosts very dark green margins surrounding narrow creamy white centers with random outward spikes.  Hardier than its parents...creamy centers turn white later in the season ."
