Hosta 'Regal Supreme'
 

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Krossa Regal' which was granted a U.S. patent in 2009. It was originated by Jan van den Top of the Netherlands and registered by Danny Van Eechaute of Belgium in 2008. This giant size plant grows about 34 inches in height with a width of around 43 inches. The foliage is slightly blue-green with a wide creamy white marginal variegation. Its leaves are lightly folded, flat and have a glaucous bloom on top. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late June into July in Belgium. It does not set seed.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A striking specimen and superb in antique stone containersa giving a quite regal appearance."

Similar hostas include H. 'Regal Splendor'.
