Hosta 'Titanic'

Registered by Hans Hansen and Shady Oaks Nursery of Minnesota in 1999, this is a sport of H. 'Sum and Substance'. It was granted a U.S. patent in 1999. This giant size (over 30 inches high) plant has a wide margin of gold color that changes to chartreuse as the summer progresses. It bears lavender flowers from late July into August on long, four foot tall scapes.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The margin is much wider than that of 'Lady Isobel Barnett' and 'Sum It Up', but about the same as 'Sum of All' and a few others."

United States Patent: PP12402   (1992)

Abstract: A distinct cultivar of Hosta plant named ‘Titanic’, characterized by a unique variegation pattern with dark-green centers and relatively wide uneven yellow margins.
