Hosta 'Stegeman's Dreadnaught'
 

This dark green hosta is a non-registered cultivar from Bev and Dave Stegeman of Indiana. It is a hybrid of H. 'Sagae' × H. 'Leather Sheen'. The plant is large size growing to a height of around 24 inches with a spread of about 55 inches. Its leaves are very broadly ovate, unruly and moderately corrugated. Very pale purple flowers bloom from late June into July.

We are guessing that this cultivar was named for a type of battleship. That, however, is spelled with an "o" as in dreadnought.
