Hosta 'Pineapple Punch'

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Pineapple Upsidedown Cake' that was discovered by Amy Bergeron and registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2005 and granted a U.S. patent in 2007. The medium size, dense mound has leaves that are narrow, heavily rippled. In August, it bears lavender flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "When I first viewed this plant during the 2005 "First Look" seedling and sport competition, I was enthralled with it. Competition judges voted it the best sport at that meeting, and deservedly so! The beautiful creamy margins accentuate its rippled effect, making for a spectacular plant."

This cultivar won the 2005 Kevin Vaughn Award at the First Look hosta competition as the best sport as chosen by the AHS Judges.

United States Patent: PP18318   (2007)
