Hosta 'Roller Coaster'

This is another of the hybrids of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' × H. hypoleuca which was registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2001. It is a large size plant that grows to 27 inches tall with dark green foliage that is streaked with yellow and has a yellow marginal variegation. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Emerges very early in spring and might require protection from late frosts. Fast-growing and large enough for a woodland walk or raised bed."
