Hosta 'Sharmon'

Thomas Donahue registered this cultivar (named for his wife) in 1986 as a sport of H. 'Fortunei'. It forms a large size (23 inches high by about 41 inches wide) mound of somewhat cupped, slightly corrugated leaves with better than average substance. The pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...belongs to the class of cultivars with 'Fortunei Albopicta' type variegation. Like most of them, once the average daily temperature reaches the upper 60's, its variegation fades away...formerly known as 'Jacqueline', 'Marcia',..."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "Moderate to rapid growth rate...Central variegation is overlaid with fine, netted veins."

H. 'Sharmon D.' = H. 'Sharmon'
