Hosta 'Sangamore of the Wabash'

This non-registered seedling selection of H. 'Dorothy Benedict', this cultivar was originated by Bob Balitewicz of Indiana. It is a large size plant about 20 inches high by 45 inches wide. The blue-green foliage has greenish yellow to mottled marginal variegation. Its leaves are broadly ovate and have a moderate bloom on the bottom.

This may be a misspelling of the "Sagamore of the Wabash" which is an award given out periodically by the Governor of Indiana. It was inspired by their neighboring state's Kentucky Colonel certificates. The term "sagamore" is a Native American word to describe a lower level chief or significant man in the tribe. It is the highest award the governor can give to people who have somehow distinguished themselves. The Wabash River runs through Indiana.
