Hosta 'Pearl Lake'

This cultivar was originated by David Stone of Connecticut and registered by Henry Payne of Piedmont Gardens in Connecticut in 1982. It is of unidentified parentage but according to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), it is "Most likely it is a seedling of H. nakaiana."

This is a medium size (17 inches high) mound of heart shaped foliage that is slightly wavy and corrugated. It forms pale lavender, bell-shape flowers in July with many blooms per scape.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Has never become a favorite in spite of receiving the Alex J. Summers Distinguished Merit Hosta Award in 1982."
