Hosta 'Silverback'


Registered by Richard Merritt of New Hampshire Hostas in New Hampshire in 2020, this giant size (28 inches high by 50 inches wide) cultivar is a sport of H. 'Humpback Whale'. It is a blue-green hosta with creamy yellow marginal variegation. The broadly ovate leaves are slightly corrugated and dull on top. Near white flowers bloom from June into July on scapes 40 to 50 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Same blue green leaves as its parent with an added creamy yellow margin and a third greyish hue jetting from the margin to the midrib...margins brighten as the season progresses."
