Hosta 'OHS Calamari'

This tissue culture sport of H. 'Sea Octopus' was originated by Robert Lasek of Canada but registered by the Ontario Hosta Society in 2008. It is a small size hosta that grows to about 8 inches high with a spread of about 20 inches. The green colored foliage has white medial (center) variegation and regular ripples which become more irregular as the plant ages. Its foliage is dull on top, moderately corrugated and has average substance with red dotted petioles. Medium purple flowers bloom from August into September.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Will enjoy several hours of sun provided it gets plenty of water. An ideal plant for the raised bed and larger containers."
