Hosta 'Northern Lights'
aka Hosta NORTHERN LIGHTS

 

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Elegans' that emerged during tissue culture. It was registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 1984 and forms a medium size (14 inches high) plant. The foliage is ovate shaped, slightly corrugated and of average substance. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "As the years go by, fewer and fewer hosta enthusiasts attempt to grow 'Northern Lights'. It has proven to be a very slow grower due to its lack of chlorophyll...Most collectors grow 'Northern Mist', 'Northern Mystery' or 'Great Expectations' instead."
