Hosta 'Pea Pod'


This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. One is registered and, therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Pea Pod' while the other is a non-registered plant and needs to be renamed to avoid further confusion.



Registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 2016 and re-registered with new data in 2018, this fast growing, large size (22 inches high by 48 inches wide) cultivar is a sport of H. 'Sugar Snap'. The foliage is dark green, moderately cupped, nearly round, moderately corrugated and very shiny on top. Fragrant, near white, tubular flowers bloom from June into July on scapes up to 30 inches tall.

The registration materials state: "Dark green cupped and puckered leaves with fragrant flowers and rapid growth rate."

Originated by Monty Carlson and Julie Carlson of Northernair Hostas in Minnesota, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a small size hosta with shiny green foliage. The leaves are slightly wavy and come to a distinct tip.
