Hosta 'Stitch Genes'


Originated by Jan van den Top of the Netherlands, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. We found it listed in the following article about Look-alike Hostas but have no other information on it. From the picture on the Hosta Library, it appears to be a plant with yellow foliage that has an unusual pattern of green as a medial (center) variegation.


An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
