Hosta 'Orphan Train Ruffian'

Registered by Charles Kwick of Wisconsin in 2017, this medium size (14 inches high by 36 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. montana 'Aureomarginata'. The dark green leaves are slightly rippled, slightly folded, corrugated and slightly shiny on top. Very pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 40 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Low mound of dark shiny leaves...darkens slightly throughout the season."
