Hosta 'Popcorn'

Tom Schmid registered this cultivar of unidentified parentage in 1999. This medium size (12 inches high by 25 inches wide) plant was originated by Eleanor Lachman of Massachusetts. Its leaves are cupped, heavily corrugated and have thick substance. The near white flowers bloom in July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "The subtle tonal variegation quickly responds to different light and heat levels so the plant may need to be tried in several places before the optimum conditions are found. Slow to increase but well worth the wait as it is one of the most attractive of the Lachman introductions...exceptionally thick, cardboard-like leaf substance...very short scapes, rising only just above the leaf mound."
