Hosta 'Stellar by Starlight'

Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan registered this hybrid of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' × H. hypoleuca in 2000. It forms a large size mound about 23 inches high with a spread of around 45 inches. The foliage color is highly variable with a dark green base color and streaks of yellow to creamy white. Some leaves are green with a white marginal variegation while others have a white medial (center) variegation pattern. Its foliage is slightly corrugated, slightly cupped and has thick substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.


Although the spelling of this cultivar is officially "Stellar", I wonder if it is either a misspelling or a play on words for this novel. Oh, well.
