Hosta 'Pat Raeder'

This is a seedling selection which was registered by Bob Kuk of Kuk's Forest in Ohio in 2012. The plant grows to a medium size plant about 15 inches in height with a spread of around 18 inches. Its leaves are broadly ovate in shape, moderately wavy and have a thin bloom on the underside. Medium lavender, tubular flowers with deep lavender stripes bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...had a chance to observe this cultivar during the 2005 National 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, AHS National Convention. She showcased a huge clump of ‘Pat Raeder’ that received considerable attendee attention."
