Hosta 'Rhinestone Cowboy'

Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan registered this cultivar in 2000. It is a hybrid of H. 'Sea Prize' × H. 'Maekawa' that grows into a medium size (17 inches high) mound with heavily corrugated, unruly, slightly rippled foliage with thick substance. In July, it produces very pale lavender flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...was registered as having heavily streaked foliage...Ed Elslager's specimen had stabilized to the chartreuse-centered version...That form represents the cultivar in the nursery trade."
