Hosta 'St. Paul'

A sport of H. 'Paul's Glory', this non-registered cultivar by Tom Goad of Ohio grows into a large size hosta about 22 inches in height and 55 inches in width. It has broadly ovate to oblong ovate, wavy and moderately corrugated foliage. The pale lavender flowers bloom starting in mid-July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...differs significantly from 'Paul's Glory' by its much wider margin. Differences, however, from 'American Glory Be' and 'Lakeside Shore Master' are negligible."

Similar cultivars include H. 'American Glory Be', H. 'Lakeside Shore Master', H. 'Paradise Glory' and H. 'Pete's Passion'.
