Hosta 'Spring Beauty'

 

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neither are currently registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the others would have to be renamed.

 

This is a non-registered cultivar from Bruce Banyai of Delaware and according to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), it was "...observed at the 1994 AHS leaf show; may no longer exist."

Obviously, this cultivar does still exist since we took the picture of it in the Benedict Hosta Hillside in 2015. We suspect that it is extremely rare and the plant shown may have come directly from Bruce Banyai who came from Michigan originally.


Originated by Jeff Moore of Wisconsin this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a very upright, medium size hosta with very light green foliage. The petioles are a rhubarb red color and that extends into the middle vein of the leaf blade. Its ovate leaves are slightly wavy and come to a distinct point at the tip.

 

Originated by Unknown this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a small size hosta with green foliage that has a narrow, creamy white marginal variegation. The elliptical leaves have a wider petiole and come to a point at the tip.
