Hosta 'Norma's Afternoon'

 

Originated by Gerry Hicks of Maine and registered by R. Starr of New York in 2019, this very upright growing, medium size (16 inches high by 16 inches wide) cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It has dark green foliage with foliage that is slightly shiny on top, broadly ovate, slightly cupped and moderately corrugated "with dimples and erratic seersuckering." The petioles are described as strong and thick. Flowers are pale lavender on the outside with striped white petals on the inside. They bloom from late July into August on dark green scapes around 14 inches tall. It sets seed but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Strong thick dark-green leaves with assorted dimples and seersuckering. Turns slightly lighter in bright light but generally retains its beautiful color all season."
