Hosta 'Pin Stripe Sister'

A hybrid of H. 'Breeder's Choice' × H. 'Frances Williams', this cultivar was originated by Dr. Kevin Vaughn of Massachusetts but registered by Dr. Dick Ward of Ohio in 2009.

It is a medium size plant about 18 inches high by 30 inches wide with green foliage that has yellow and white streaked variegation. This highly prized breeding plant has leaves that are broadly ovate shaped, slightly corrugated, slightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. Very pale lavender, tubular flowers bloom from late June into July followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has proven to be an even greater breeding plant than its sibling, 'Pin Stripe'."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to increase. Among the best-known and most highly regarded breeding hostas ever introduced."
