Hosta 'Primal Scream'

Registered by Stuart Asch of Michigan in 2009, this large size (28 inches high by 42 inches wide), upright growing cultivar is of unidentified parentage. The medium blue-green foliage has an irregular, creamy white marginal variegation with some streaks. Its leaves are broadly ovate, moderately corrugated, intensely folded, deeply cupped and dull on top. Tubular, slightly striped flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 55 inches tall.

According to the registration materials: "...intensely folded, cupped, large blue green leaves that turn upward as the season progresses. Excellent substance with irregular streaking in some leaves, very tall with great scapes..."

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "Similar to Primal Fear in leaf shape. Leaves are irregularly streaked and have no edge. Each leaf/plant is a bit different when it comes to streaks. Some leaves have no streaking. Like PI, PS has intensely folded/cupped large blue-green leaves that turn upward as the season progresses. Seeds are fertile and the pods are streaky as well. Erect scapes to 55" tall."
