Hosta 'Stewball'


This cultivar was listed on the Hosta Lists website. Originated by Rick Goodenough of Massachusetts, this non-registered cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Leaping Lipazzan'.

An article by Rick Goodenough in The Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 1) states that, “At the time I planted my ‘Leaping Lipizzan’ test seeds in 2008. I shared the same seeds with numerous folks who wanted to try them…Trudy Van Wyke…has named one of these fine blue streakers ‘Hosana’. Jeff Moore has an interesting and fairly rare yellow streaker from this lot that he calls ‘Stewball’ from the Peter, Paul and Mary song about a racehorse.”
