Hosta 'Summer Fragrance'

Dr Kevin Vaughn registered this large size hosta with white margins in 1983. It is a cross between an unnamed seedling and H. plantaginea. The large size (26 inches high) plant has moderately wavy, ovate shaped foliage with above average substance. Its fragrant, very pale lavender flowers  bloom from mid-August into September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has historical significance as the first registered hosta with fragrant flowers and variegated foliage. This is another breakthrough for Kevin Vaughn whose breeding program was well ahead of its time."

In an article in The Hosta Journal Vol. 47 No. 2 - 2016, the author described this plant's flowers as having a "Strong" fragrance compared to other hostas.
