Hosta 'Spring Back'

Registered by Stuart Asch of Michigan in 2009, this cultivar is a sport of H. 'Spring Break'. The medium size hosta grows to about 18 inches in height by 34 inches in width with chartreuse to gold colored foliage. Its leaves are narrowly ovate, slightly folded, moderately wavy, slightly twisted, slightly cupped and shiny on top. Very pale lavender, tubular and striped flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes about 35 inches tall.

The registration information states, "...beautiful lime green leaves that appear fluorescent in spring. Strong flourish of purple flowers peaking towards end of July. Similar to H. 'Spring Break' without the edge..."

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "An all yellow sport of Spring Break. Alike in almost every way to Spring Break except for not having an edge and may be a bit darker in color. Has a strong flourish of purple flowers peaking towards the end of July."
