tissue culture sport of H. 'Loyalist' was registered by
Gert van Eijk-Bos and
Inc. of Michigan. It grows
into a medium size (15 inches high by 35 inches wide) plant with green speckled, somewhat twisted foliage. In July,
lavender flowers bloom on creamy yellow scapes.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...may be the best grower of all the
white-centered 'Patriot' type s. It has a fairly
vigorous growth rate and will clump up nicely within two to three years after
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Careful placement is necessary to achieve the
right balance of sun and shade. Can often stabilize
to all-green leaves so frequent division is
advised...Differs from its parent in having green
flecks in the center of the leaf."
An article by Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (2008 Vol. 39 No. 2) states that, "Paul
Aden in The Hosta Book mentioned that medio-variegated hostas develop
plain-leaved forms more readily than margin-variegated hostas. My observations
are that 'Revolution' develops all-green leaves more readily than
does. Apparently this is to be expected because 'Revolution' has more white
tissue than 'Independence' -- and it's white tissue that wants to "re-green"."
