Hosta 'Pizzazz'

This hybrid of two unidentified seedling s was originated by Dr. Kevin Vaughn of Massachusetts and registered by Paul Aden of New York in 1986 (later changed to registered by the The American Hosta Society). It grows into a large size hosta about 21 inches in height by 48 inches wide with yellow margins in the spring that turn to white by early summer. The leaves are broadly ovate, cupped up or down and have a distinct tip. They are somewhat unruly, moderately corrugated and have a thin bloom on the underside. Near white flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...offers the combination of attractively variegated foliage, a dense mound habit, and thick substance. It ranks high in distinction, being easily identified without a label."

Rainer Seckinger noticed that H. 'Pizzazz and H. 'Ussuri' are very similar cultivars as shown in the photo he submitted below.
