Hosta 'Principal's List'

Registered by Stuart Asch of Michigan in 2003, this slow growing, upright cultivar is a hybrid of a seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' which we called "Asch Seedling HB1". It is a large size plant about 28 inches high by 38 inches wide with intensely blue-green foliage that has unstable creamy white streaked variegation. The leaves are broadly ovate to nearly round, heavily corrugated, slightly wavy and dull on top. Tubular flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes 24 to 34 inches tall followed by green or streaked seed pods.

According to the registration materials: "...heavily corrugated nearly round, streaked leaves with good substance..."

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "An old beauty that grows best in dappled early morning and setting sun. Large heavily corrugated leaves the have irregular streaking. The dark blue-green leaves are almost round and fold down slightly at the tip."
