2012. The plant grows to a medium size plant about 15 inches in height with a

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...had a chance to observe this cultivar during the 2005
Convention of The
American Hosta Society and was favorably impressed."
According to the
2018 AHS Online Auction webpage,
"Bob named this hosta for Pat Raeder, a prominent
hosta collector and gardener who lived nearby in Brecksville. Her garden and
Bob’s Kuk Forest were on the coach tours at the 2005 Cleveland, Ohio,
Convention. She showcased a huge clump of ‘Pat Raeder’ that received
considerable attendee attention."
