Hosta 'Summer Breeze'

In 1999, Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this tissue culture sport of H. 'Summer Music'. This medium to large size hosta grows to about 19 to 22 inches in height and a width of 45 to 50 inches. Its leaves are very broadly ovate, wavy, slightly corrugated and a bit unruly with good substance. The pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), " of the best sports developed at my nursery over the last twenty-five years...margin remains an attractive gold color throughout the growing season."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Moderately rapid growth rate...The leaves emerge green, the variegation appears slowly."
