Hosta 'Ugly Duckling'

This tissue culture sport of H. 'Gold Regal' was originated by Mark Zilis of Illinois and registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1999. It is a large size plant growing to about 19 inches in height with a spread of 45 inches. The leaves are narrow, gold colored with a white marginal variegation. Its foliage is ovate, moderately corrugated and sometimes cupped. Lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "To avoid any potential problem with the drawstring effect, divide 'Ugly Duckling' every three or four years to keep it in the juvenile state and don't over-fertilize."
