Hosta 'Rufus Rider'

Originated by Ron Livingston of Michigan and registered on his behalf by AHS/G. H. Alley in 2020, this medium size (13 inches high by 26 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of an unnamed seedling × H. 'Red Neck Heaven'. The foliage is moderate yellowish-green (N138B RHS Colour Chart) with a pale greenish-yellow (2D RHS Colour Chart) marginal variegation. Its elliptical leaves are slightly wavy, slightly rippled and dull on top. The leaf coloration extends down the entire length of the petioles and red speckles appear on their backside.

Near white flowers with extremely pale lavender stripes down the center of the petals bloom from late July into august on red speckled scapes 25 to 29 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Nice low-growing yet fountain-like clump of undulating elliptical leaves.  Nice size and shape for the front of your garden...margins turn slightly more white throughout the season."
